Enteroviruses are very common viruses. There are more than 100 types of enteroviruses. It is estimated that 10 to 15 million enterovirus infections occur in the U.S. each year. Most people infected with enteroviruses have no symptoms or only mild symptoms, but some infections can be serious. Infants, children and teenagers are most likely to get infected with enteroviruses and become sick. This is because they do not yet have immunity from previous exposures to these viruses. Most enterovirus infections in the U.S. occur seasonally during the summer and fall, and outbreaks often tend to occur in several-year cycles. > Read More
