Mysterious viral flu fast spreading among children: Paediatrician


A mystery virus suspected to be the Adenovirus, which is highly contagious, especially among children is rapidly spreading these days, Consultant Paediatrician of the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children Dr. Deepal Perera said.

“In addition to usual influenza symptoms children have presented with symptoms such as crusty eyes and red eyes. Some of these children have tested positive for influenza, while others haven’t,” he said. 

“Children who present flu symptoms should be kept home. If the illness persists, a medical professional should be consulted to rule out other infections,” he said.
