Children’s Deaths in Cambodia Linked to Enterovirus
The Institut Pasteur in Cambodia has discovered Enterovirus Type 71 in about two-thirds of patients it tested after a mystery disease killed more than 60 children in the country, said the head of the institute’s virology unit.
Enterovirus Type 71 is a “perfect explanation” for the deaths, Philippe Buchy said by telephone today. “We can now focus on how to contain it,” he said.
