Adenoviruses refer to a group of viral infections that can get into the tissue linings
of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, intestines, eyes and nervous system. They’re
responsible for about a tenth of acute respiratory infections and other high-temperature
sicknesses, as well as diarrhea.
Respiratory problems associated with the adenoviruses are more common in the late
winter to early summer. Just about everyone has had an adenoviral infection before
the age of ten. Because there are different types, it is entirely possible to get
such an infection multiple times.
Facts about Adenovirus
Adenoviruses are more likely to infect young children and infants rather than adults.
Mold does not cause adenoviruses. According to research from The U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, there is no link between mold and the various types
Adenoviruses are easily spread much like the flu, through touching or coming in contact
with an infected person (shaking hands, cough and sneezing).
Infection with adenovirus rarely leads to more serious problems, such as high fever, pneumonia
and stomach and bowel problems.
People with weakened immune systems are at high risk for developing serious illnesses
caused by adenovirus infection.
