Unidentified illness sickens more than a thousand children in US

A respiratory illness that has sent more than a thousand children to emergency rooms or clinics in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors said Sunday.

Officials suspect the disease is a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68, which mimics the common cold. Doctors say they are not sure how the virus spreads but that the back-to-school season is a normal time for illnesses to spread among children.
