All You Need to Know About the ‘Highly-Contagious’ Stomach Flu

  • The Norovirus are a group of viruses that cause gastrointestinal illness. The virus causes inflammation of the lining of the stomach and intestines, as well as severe vomiting and diarrhoea. Norovirus does not significantly affect healthy people, but it can be serious in young children, the elderly, and those with other comorbidities.
  • This animal-borne disease can also be spread through direct contact with infected individuals. The virus is spread through the excrement and vomit of an infected person. Therefore, it is essential to be careful as the disease spreads very quickly.
  • However, the virus can be spread for up to two days after the onset of the disease. Some common symptoms of Norovirus include diarrhoea, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, fever, headache, and body aches. Acute vomiting and diarrhoea can lead to dehydration and further complications.
Precautions:
  • The National Centre for Disease Control and Prevention stated that to keep Norovirus at bay, regular washing of hands is required and fruits and vegetables must be rinsed in hot water properly.
