Fourth case of enterovirus D68 in Manitoba

WINNIPEG-Manitoba Health says there’s another case of enterovirus D68 in the province. This most recent case involves a child under 10 years of age.

Three other cases of the virus that can cause other respiratory illnesses were confirmed earlier this month.

Manitoba Health says it anticipated more cases over the course of the fall. Symptoms of the virus can range from none to neurological effects.

Manitoba Health said in a press release, “Manitobans should regularly wash their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer, and use proper cough etiquette, such as coughing into the elbow, health officials say. If a child has a high fever, difficulty breathing, is not drinking well or not urinating, parents can contact their health-care provider, call Health Links–Info Sante in Winnipeg at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free), go to a walk-in clinic, a QuickCare Clinic or the nearest emergency department.”
