The viruses mostly causing the condition include influenza, rhino virus, syncytial and adenoviridae virus. The symptoms experienced include an expectorant cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and occasional chest pains. Wheezing and chest pains are as a result of blockage of the airways causing difficulties in air passing through.
