“Are Colorado limb weakness cases connected with Enterovirus 68?”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating whether limb weakness and paralysis in nine children in Colorado could be connected to the far-reaching outbreak of the respiratory disease Enterovirus 68.

All of the children had reported having a respiratory virus before showing symptoms of limb weakness.

Six of the eight children tested were found to be positive for a rhinovirus or enterovirus and four of those cases were found to be the Enterovirus 68. The other two cases were still pending.
