According to Reuters's Will Dunham, "[a] new and virulent strain of adenovirus, which frequently causes the common cold, killed 10 people in parts of the United States earlier this year and put dozens into hospitals, U.S. health officials said on Thursday."

And it gets worse. Quoth the CDC's John Su: "[w]hether you're a healthy young adult, an infant or an elderly person, this virus can cause severe respiratory disease at any age" and "[w]hat makes this particular adenovirus a little different is that it has the capability of making healthy young adults severely ill. And that's unusual for an adenovirus, and that's why it's got our attention."

Yep.
