The New Virus Persists at Lackland

The center for Air Force basic training is still reporting a significant number of recruits with adenovirus serotype 14, but the number has come down from earlier this year, reports the San Antonio Express-News. The new strain killed one airman, who had just graduated from basic, earlier this year and another eight people in Oregon, Texas, and Washington, according to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials at Lackland do not attribute the situation to anything other than Mother Nature.
