The molecular diagnosis of enterovirus meningitis was performed by the core laboratory in 2005 (laboratory developed real-time PCR assay) and the POC-labs from 2008 to 2010 (GeneXpert® system). The length of stay of infected patients in 2005 was measured [16] and compared with that of infected patients during the period from 2008 to 2010. Each symbol represents a patient with enterovirus meningitis. Statistical significance was defined as a p value <0.05.
