Seattle Children's Hospital announced Friday that two children have tested positive for the uncommon Enterovirus D-68 strain.
The hospital says the two children had preexisting conditions that exacerbated their condition but were stable enough to be discharged from the hospital earlier this week.
"Confirmation of these cases indicates that EV-D68 is likely in our communities and that we can expect to see additional cases over the coming weeks," said Dr. Jeff Duchin, Chief of Communicable Disease and Epidemiology at Public Health - Seattle & King County. "But we can’t predict at this time how severe or how long an EV-D68 outbreak might be locally."
