Where non-polio Enteroviruses can be found and how infection can occur
Non-polio Enteroviruses can be found in the eye secretions, faeces, nose and mouth of an infected person. Virus transmission therefore occurs when in close contact with an infected person or when consuming contaminated water. The virus can be spread even when the person has no symptoms.
