Enterovirus D68 has killed five U.S. children and infected hundreds more in the past month and a half, doctors confirm, and some believe there may be a connection between the sudden outbreak and the throngs of unaccompanied, illegal-alien children now being housed across the country.
A 2013 study published in Virology Journal found EV-D68 in a small proportion of young people with flu-like symptoms in eight Latin American countries.
According to investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, there are significant numbers of unaccompanied illegal minors in Kansas City and Chicago, the two cities where the current EV-D68 outbreak was first identified.
The outbreak happened in mid- to late August, right around the time when many children would have gone back to school and come into contact with their new illegal-alien classmates for the first time.
While not proving the Enterovirus outbreak originated with the Central American children, the CDC reports on its website confirmed EV-D68 cases in 44 states and the District of Columbia since mid-August. That includes states, such as Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming, which have very few illegal minors. Meanwhile, Arizona, a common crossing point and holding ground for illegal aliens, is one of the six states that have not had a confirmed case of EV-D68.
And Enteroviruses are not unheard of in the United States. They commonly circulate during summer and fall. The current strain, EV-D68, was first identified in California in 1962 and has rarely been reported in the U.S. since then. The CDC has not offered any theories to explain the current outbreak, which has led many to speculate.
