WI DHS Investigating Cases of Adenovirus on College Campuses in WI


The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is investigating multiple cases of Adenovirus infection on college campuses around the state. An infection most commonly cases respiratory illness, and while serious illness caused by the infection is rare, experts say in some cases it can lead to pneumonia or death.

Health officials say Adenovirus is easily spread, and can be passed from person to person by simply breathing in air after someone with the infection has sneezed or coughed, or by touching or shaking hands with someone with the virus, then putting your hands on your mouth, nose or eyes.

In addition to respiratory illness, symptoms of an infection include Diarrhea, Pink eye and in rare cases – inflammation of the bladder and severe neurological disease.

DHS says antibiotics do not work on the virus, and people with symptoms should see a doctor, stay home from work and school and practice good hygiene by washing hands and covering coughs and sneezes to avoid spreading the disease to others.
