Unusual respiratory virus strikes hundreds of metro kids

August 2014 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An unusual respiratory virus is striking children in the metro in big numbers. Children’s Mercy Hospital is hospitalizing 20 to 30 kids a day with the virus. The hospital is as full now as it is at the height of flu season. This is not the same virus we told you about several weeks ago that can cause meningitis. This one can cause severe breathing trouble. Children’s Mercy has seen more than 300 cases in recent days in kids of all ages. Preston Sheldon’s mom says he seemed fine when she took him to pre-school Tuesday. But minutes later, the Grain Valley mom got the call. Her three-year-old son was having trouble breathing. “You could see his ribs, and his stomach was pushing out really hard… I thought it was an asthma attack,” said Pam Sheldon. But it was a virus that is inundating Children’s Mercy with patients. “To be at winter census is quite unusual in August obviously. To see a virus we’ve not seen before is unusual, too,” said Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, an infectious disease specialist.
It is enterovirus 68. The doctor says it’s well-known around the world, but cases have not been seen in Kansas City before. “We have about 10 to 15 percent who have severe illness from this virus which actually acts like asthma exacerbations,” said Dr. Jackson. She says about two-thirds of the hospitalized cases are in children like Preston who have a history of asthma or wheezing. But others are having trouble breathing, too. She says the virus will produce an ordinary cold in many kids. What should parents watch for? “The difficulty breathing is a very obvious tip-off sign they need to come into the hospital,” said Dr. Jackson. To try to stop the spread, Children’s Mercy has posted signs at security entrances saying children 12 or younger should not visit in-patients. Nor should those with symptoms visit. Dr. Jackson says good hand washing, covering your cough and not sending your child to school if he or she appears sick can help control the spread. There’s no anti-viral medicine for enterovirus 68 and no vaccine. Supportive care, including oxygen, has helped Preston. His mom is glad they didn’t wait to go to the emergency room. “Cause it can hit really fast. And without medical treatment, it could get really bad,” she said. –Fox 4 KC

    “…and no vaccine.”

    A silver lining for these poor kiddies.

    No probably from chemtrails. I felt the effects of this myself. I live in the area. Since I’m 50 the effects were not as devastating but noticable.

    Sounds like things are going as planned.
    Get ready!

    1) Colloidal Silver – make your own (Silver Lungs is highly recommended, check out the testimonies) and yes, it will work for viruses.
    2) Lots of Vitamin C (emergen-c is a really good one with electrolytes).
    3) Know and grow medicinal herbs (check out Stephen H. Buhner’s natural antibiotics and natural antivirals books). There is plenty of info out there.
    4) Filter your water at home (who knows what can be put in there to make people “sick”).
    5) Medicinal activated charcoal (NOT the one you grill with). This will be great for a number of issues ( please do your homework/research on this amazing creation).

    You can not depend on hospitals, doctors, etc. There might be reasons down the road for you NOT to go there. Or they will not take care of you because you don’t fit in their protocol (we just received a letter today that is definitely going in that direction).

    Most of all, stay close to the Creator of the Heavens and the earth.

  5. Background radiation is rising across the country because of nuclear fallout from Fukuschima’s damaged and deteriorating reactors. This is going to bring on a hellish multitude of new viral disease’s and bacterial infections, because the immune systems of every living organism on the planet is now compromised by an onslaught of radioactive poison. Every single day, this crippled power plant belches thousands (hundreds of tons) of gallons of the most radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. People around the world are still eating fish!? Food crops and milk and water here in the US become more contaminated with every new rainfall. Don’t blame the Mexicans! Blame the fat cat, rich military industrialists who profit from the blight of Nuclear energy and all the politicians in Washington (every single elected official) who take bribes to protect these criminals.

    Seriously? Even mentioning Ebola in your tagline discredits your whole article. You are just breeding fear. Ebola has been having outbreaks since the 70s and it has never “taken off here”. Unless your kids are.going and playing with the blood or other bodily fluids of someone who has already DIED from Ebola the chance of infection is obsolete. So im pretty sure you’ll be good unless you plan to sent your kids to Africa and into the Hot Zone. Ugh. Ignorant scare tactics.

    I’m wondering how heavy the Chemtrail activity was in that FEMA REGION. That being said, “THEY” can cause any disease or ailment or detrimental condition via SCALAR WEAPONRY…

    I took my son to the dr on Friday after a week of a painful, pneumonia-like cough. The dr said she’d seen many cases just like that with few, if ANY, other symptoms. She said the symptom of the painful cough was reminiscent of pneumonia. My child did not have the severe difficulty breathing as mentioned above, but this was sudden and odd. The dr gave us antibiotics & said to watch him for breathing issues. My son is greatly improved, thankfully. We live in central Mississippi.
