Dear Sir,

There are many new emerging infectious diseases at present. Enterovirus infections are usually mentioned as new diseases. The recent outbreak of enterovirus D68 in the USA has become a public health concern. However, there has just been a report of newer emerging enterovirus infections. The enterovirus C105 is a problematic infection. This disease is firstly determined during the outbreak of enterovirus D68. The new enterovirus C105 causes acute flaccid paralysis illness.[1] At present, the virus can be seen worldwide, in the USA, Europe, and Australia.[2],[3] It is suggested that there must be surveillance on this new virus and the preparedness for fighting this new disease is required.
