Non-polio enterovirus infections cause symptoms and signs such as sneezing, mouth blisters, and fever. Symptoms and signs of EV-D68 infection include rash, cough, and breathing problems. Treatment focuses on supportive care, such as oxygen therapy, inhaled steroids, and ventilator support. A vaccine is available to prevent polio, but there are no vaccines available to prevent non-polio enterovirus infections.
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 vast majority of cases of non-polio enterovirus infection do not cause symptoms or cause mild illness with an excellent prognosis.
