This page is dedicated to enteroviruses, particularly enterovirus 71, echovirus 7 and coxsackie group of viruses, as well as some links to adenoviruses. It will also be a site for viral myocarditis and hand,foot and mouth disease. General links to viruses, epidemiological related resources and articles will be maintained. This page started as a result of the outbreak(1997) in Sarawak, Malaysia and later Taiwan. Some links although redundant will be maintained as a reminder of this event. Since then outbreaks have occurred in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and China.

This is probably the very first site dedicated to enteroviruses esp. outbreaks in particular EV 71 in the world since 6th June 1997!

This page is on Hand, Foot and Mouth disease which affects humans, if you are looking for foot and mouth disease, I suggest you go to Foot and Mouth Disease - Vads Corner
