Human Parainfluenza Virus
Hey there fella!
I am Human Parainfluenza Virus.
I'm from the Paramyxoviridae family.
But I'm not like my friend Influenza.
I am the most common cause of croup.
It is also called laryngo-tracheo-bronchitis.
I give kids a loud noise when they breathe in.
This is called stridor.
I also give kids a barking cough.
It sounds like a seal!
