Though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) refuses to discuss the origin of the current outbreak of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), the fact that emergency rooms across the country began seeing infected children around the same time as the nation’s public schools were re-opening for the 2013-2014 school year, should serve as at least a clue as to how the virus made its way here.

Between Oct. 1, 2013 and Aug. 31, 2014 there were 66,127 so-called “unaccompanied minors” entered this country along our Southern border and processed by officials, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

While the evidence seems to point to the recent surge of illegal aliens as the cause of the EV-D68 outbreak, now there is proof…
A 2013 Defense Department study conducted in Central and South America on patients with flu-like illness, did identify EV-D68 in some of the test subjects. All 3,375 test subjects were age 25 or under.
The CDC now reports that cases of EV-D68 have been seen in 43 states as well as the District of Columbia. However, unofficially, the virus which has left many children with permanent breathing problems and limb paralysis, has also taken the life of four U.S. children, since mid-August.
On Sept. 25, 4-year-old Eli Waller died in his sleep at his home in Hamilton, NJ.
