A mutated version of a common cold virus has caused 10 deaths in the last 18 months, U.S. health officials said Thursday.   Adenoviruses usually cause respiratory infections that aren’t considered lethal. But a new variant has caused at least 140 illnesses in New York, Oregon, Washington and Texas, according to a report issued Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (CNN)
