"Cases of pneumonia caused by a novel adenovirus strain called Ad14 started to appear in 2005.
"Now the US Centers for Disease Control reports that, in four unrelated outbreaks across the US in the past 18 months, Ad14 has caused severe pneumonia in at least 140 people, including babies and healthy young adults, and killed 10 of them. There may well have been many more cases, since doctors rarely test for adenovirus." - Cold virus turns nasty
