Coxsackie virus, maybe new york is just more susceptible

Coxsackie virus was first isolated from human feces in the town of Coxsackie, N.Y., in 1948 by G. Dalldorf. Coxsackie virus is also written as coxsackievirus in some publications.

Coxsackievirus is a member of the Picornaviridae family of viruses in the genus termed Enterovirus. Coxsackieviruses are subtype members of Enterovirus that have a single strand of ribonucleic acid (RNA) for its genetic material. The enteroviruses are also referred to as picornaviruses

Jeez, note the similarities with covid 19: Type B viruses cause epidemic pleurodynia (fever, lung, and abdominal pain with headache that lasts about two to 12 days and resolves). Epidemic pleurodynia is also termed Bornholm disease. There are six serotypes of coxsackievirus B (1-6, with B 4 considered by some researchers as a possible cause of diabetes in a number of individuals).

coxsackieviruses are contagious person to person. These viruses are transmitted mainly by the fecal-oral route and by respiratory aerosols. Droplets containing viruses that land on objects like toys or utensils may occasionally transmit the viruses indirectly to uninfected individuals.

How long are coxsackieviruses contagious?
Coxsackieviruses are most contagious during the first week of symptoms. However, viable virus microbes have been found in respiratory tracts for up to three weeks and then in feces up to eight weeks after initial infection, but during this time, the viruses are less contagious.

Good news is it doesn't appear to be fatal, or at least not highly so.

3. hope you are right

Hope you are right, and I suspect so. Correlation does not prove causation, at least not necessarily.
Just thought of it more as a coincidence, quirky.

More likely new york city's high population density of 25,000 people per square mile.

More people live in new york city (8 million) than in the combined population of the 7 states of montana, both dakotas, wyoming, alaska, idaho, and vermont.

4. I remember the first time I heard of this virus.


My now 20-year old granddaughter was 18 months old or younger. Kids were getting this in wading pools, they were in diapers. And you know what’s in some diapers.

8. People are just waking up to the wide range of viruses that circulate worldwide nearly continually.

Coxsackieviruses are among them. None of this is new.

If your kid ever experienced an outbreak of "hand, foot and mouth disease" in school or daycare--a condition that causes rashes on the extremities thus earning the name, this is a result of seasonal enterovirus spread--specifically one of several coxsackieviruses. Highly infectious, but self-limiting in this case.
