How does the virus spread?

Since EV-D68 causes respiratory illness, the virus can be found in an infected person’s saliva, nasal mucus, or sputum. EV-D68 likely spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches a surface that is then touched by others.

In the United States, people are more likely to get infected with Enteroviruses in the summer and fall.
