Hospital sets patient record as children’s virus spreads

Now, whatever could be causing the spread of this virus? Please read below from the Naval medical research center.

“Our subjects had a median age of 3 years and a 1.2:1.0 male:female ratio. HRV was identified in 16% and HEV was identified in 3%. HRVs accounted for a higher frequency of isolates in those of younger age, in particular children < 1 years old. HRV-C accounted for 38% of all HRVs detected. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a high proportion of recombinant strains between HRV-A/HRV-C and between HEV-A/HEV-B. In addition, both EV-D68 and EV-A71 were identified.
In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.”

How about that? EV-D68 is the strain spreading here.

  1. You are doing great work with this. Keep that shit up. The border is a serious fucking issue. Those lines on our map are there for a reason. If we keep it up, we’ll all have some sort of third world disease or virus before it’s over…
