{{PSDS|Human |Person-to-person; the fecal-oral route is the predominant mode, although transmission sometimes occurs via respiration of oral secretions such as saliva. Indirect transmission occurs through numerous routes, including via contaminated water, food, and fomites (inanimate objects). Contaminated swimming and wading pools can also transmit the virus. |Deaths and other adverse consequences are rare and limited to patients with severe echovirus encephalitis or to persons with B cell-deficiency syndromes who develop persistent infection (Modlin 1986). | |A type of RNA virus that belongs to the genus ''Enterovirus'' of the ''Picornaviridae'' family|Unusually stable to chemical and physical agents and to adverse pH conditions| [[Dose response models for Adenovirus]] }}
