DENVER – Hospitals across the Denver metro area are on alert for a mystery respiratory illness that can leave children and teenagers with asthma debilitated.

Doctors told 7NEWS they believe the illness is linked to human enterovirus 68, which is related to rhinovirus, which is a cause of the common cold.

Patients often complain of a rapid onset of cold-like symptoms and then suddenly are unable to breathe.

“My head started hurting and after that my lungs started sort of closing up. It felt different,” said 13-year-old Will Cornejo, of Lone Tree.
