Echovirus 30 caused outbreaks in France, Iceland, Kosovo, and the Netherlands in 2000, and in England and Wales, Scotland, Germany, and Ireland in 2001.
Echovirus 30 was considered to be the cause of the epidemic as this enterovirus was found in 80% of the samples of CSF taken from these patients.
Echovirus 30 was the predominant serotype isolated from the CSF or throat swabs (12 of 21 isolates) of cases of aseptic meningitis, although four cases were identified as due to echovirus 13.

 Echovirus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An echovirus is a type of RNA virus that belongs to the genus Enterovirus of the Picornaviridae family.
Echovirus is highly infectious, and its primary target is children.
An echovirus measures 24-30 nanometres (nm), and is similar to other viruses, since it has a naked protein capsid, which makes up 75% of the virus particle that encloses a dense central core of single-stranded RNA.

 [No title]
The name echovirus has a deeper meaning because the first part of its name is actually an acroynm for "enteric cytopathic human orphan" virus.
The echovirus is among the leading causes of acute febrile illness in infants and young children, and is the most common cause of aseptic meningitis.
Children who are born prematurely and die from echovirus infections usually die from overwhelming liver failure or myocarditis, rather than infection of the central nervous system.

Meningitis illness began in three hospitalized patients, one incubation period after their mothers' enterovirus-like illnesses, suggesting that intrahousehold spread from adults to children was a source for several more serious infections.
Echovirus 9 was the predominate enterovirus serotype circulating in the eastern United States during 2003 and was identified as the likely etiologic agent in this outbreak.
First, although the cases of enterovirus-like illness were consistent clinically with echovirus infection and were linked temporally and epidemically to echovirus 9 aseptic meningitis cases, no laboratory confirmation was attempted.
