Reinforced poliovirus and enterovirus surveillance in Romania

Abstract

Due to the risk of poliovirus importation from Ukraine in 2015, a combined surveillance program monitoring the circulation of enteroviruses (EVs) in healthy children from at-risk areas and in the environment was conducted in Romania. Virological testing of stool samples collected from 155 healthy children aged from two months to six years and of 186 sewage water samples collected from different areas was performed. A total of 58 (37.42%) stool samples and 50 (26.88%) sewage water samples were positive for non-polio EVs, but no poliovirus was detected. A high level of circulation of echovirus (E) types 6 and 7 and coxsackievirus (CV) type B5 was observed.
