HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Patrick Woodward is seeing many cases of a wheezy bronchitis.

Bronchitis begins as some nasal congestion and scratchy throat for a day or two, but then proceeds quickly to chest pressure, cough and shortness of breath.

Practice good hand hygiene by washing often or using hand sanitizer.
