Non-polio enteroviruses infections are respiratory infections similar to cold spreads from person to person. Treatment of this infection is supportive, and no vaccine is available.Routine genotyping surveillance done by Canada's National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) identified only 85 isolates of EV-D68 between 1991 and 2013, while 282 were detected between July and October 2014.
Non-polio enterovirus infection is very common, and it is likely that pregnant women may be exposed to someone with the illness. Like most adults, pregnant women who develop an infection with one of the non-polio enteroviruses will likely have no symptoms of the infection or have only mild symptoms.The treatment for enterovirus infections is mainly supportive and designed to reduce the symptoms caused by the various enterovirus types. The vast majority of cases of non-polio enterovirus infection do not cause symptoms or cause mild illness with an excellent prognosis.
