State public health officials on Friday said the number of enterovirus-D68 cases in California has more than tripled since last month to 14 — including one patient who is paralyzed in Los Angeles.

The rest have had respiratory illness, including five patients in the greater Bay Area. Two of them live in Alameda County, and one each live in Santa Cruz County, San Francisco and Solano County, said Dr. Gil Chavez, the state’s epidemiologist, during an afternoon news conference.
