There have been respiratory viral outbreaks in the U.S. in at least 12 states. Efforts are underway to see if it is the very rare Enterovirus D68. Regardless of what virus, or viruses turn out to be causing the severe respiratory illnesses, what matters most is recognizing when someone is getting seriously ill, and preventing illness if possible. Children under the age of 5, school age asthmatics and school age former asthmatics are the most vulnerable. There have been no cases in adults yet. Typical cold symptoms can sometimes progress rapidly, within hours, to severe respiratory distress, requiring intubation and intensive hospital support. No deaths have been reported or are expected however during a collapse or an emergency we may not have access to hospitals with intubation and oxygen therapy, so we need to get really good at infection control.
Love to hear your thoughts on the subject! More from the video :)
