Enterovirus D68 is a serious respiratory illness that commonly circulates during summer and fall months. EV-D68 is believed to be associated with the common cold, but symptoms can escalate, particularly in children who have pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma.
The seasonal flu is more than a cold. The flu is a contagious illness that affects the nose, throat, lungs and other parts of the body. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing.
Chickenpox is a highly contagious illness caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), a type of herpes virus. It is often a mild illness, characterized by an itchy rash on the face, scalp and trunk with pink spots and tiny fluid-filled blisters that dry and become scabs four to five days later. Serious complications, although rare, can occur mainly in infants, adolescents, adults and persons with a weakened immune system.
