Mystery Virus Infecting Kids

In Denver, more than 900 children have been seen for severe respiratory illness since mid-August with 86 of those admitted to Children’s Hospital Colorado. Meanwhile in Columbus, Ohio, 73 children have been admitted to Nationwide Children’s Hospital there. In addition to Colorado and Ohio, North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Kentucky have also requested assistance from the CDC in investigating clusters of the virus.
