(NaturalNews) Hundreds of mostly younger children living in the Midwest have succumbed to a mystery illness in recent months that the media is now referring to as EV-D68 virus. And perhaps not surprising to Natural News readers is the fact that the virus, which has reportedly killed at least four individuals, does not seem to be afflicting anyone who is unvaccinated.
The latest reports claim that 538 people in 43 states and the District of Columbia have been confirmed as having the disease between mid-August and October 3. Symptoms of EV-D68 include many of those also associated with influenza, but typically in more severe forms — fever, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, body and muscles aches, wheezing and breathing problems are among the most common.
An executive from Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, told CNN back in early September that the severity of the outbreak is unlike anything she has ever seen.
“It’s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care. I would call it unprecedented. I’ve practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this,” explained Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, MD, at the time. “We’ve had to mobilize other providers, doctors, nurses. It’s big.”
All EV-D68-infected children vaccinated according to CDC guidelines
As the disease has progressed, one common theme has emerged: All of the children acquiring EV-D68 were vaccinated according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccination schedule, which now contains upwards of 30 jabs before a child reaches seven years of age. Not a single unvaccinated child has contracted EV-D68 so far.
“Although there is no known vaccine for the virus, and the scope which it will reach is also unknown, those [who] have become infected are following a common theme,” explains Inquisitr. “They have all been vaccinated with the MMR vaccines, influenza vaccines, and polio vaccines.”
