HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A public meeting was held in Hamilton Township, New Jersey Sunday night for parents to get more information on Enterovirus D68 following the death of a 4-year-old boy.
Preschooler Eli Waller, who attended Yardville Elementary School in Hamilton, died at home on Sept. 28.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed Friday night that Enterovirus D68 was involved in Eli’s death.
As 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported, there were answers but they weren’t always satisfying to parents.
When told, for example, that classrooms would be carefully scrubbed, some parents asked about the school buses.
“There’s no cleansing throughout the whole day of the bus, so there’s germs going from one kid to the next kid and the next kid,” one parent said.
