(Victor Valley)– Back in the classroom, kids should be focusing on reading, writing and arithmetic, but a virus making the national rounds has children falling ill and parents worried sick. Doctors with AFC and AFC/Doctors Express are urging parents to be on the lookout for symptoms of this respiratory enterovirus known as EV-D68 sweeping the nation.

The virus symptoms are sneaky — they mimic severe colds, allergies and asthma — and are hitting asthmatics especially hard. With the upcoming fall season bringing the common cold and allergies to the forefront, AFC/DRX doctors have created a Symptom Tracker that parents can use to determine whether their children have just caught a cold or if it’s something more severe.
