Word! Adenovirus

Adenovirus

Say: add-en-oh-VY-rus

Have you ever had a sore throat, cough, or runny nose? Then you've probably had an adenovirus. This is one of a group of viruses or germs that can get into your respiratory tract, eyes, intestines, or urinary tract and make you sick. Washing your hands a lot is the best way to keep from getting an adenovirus.
