Norovirus infection usually begins with diarrhea and vomiting that are often mistaken for flu, and hence the infection being termed the stomach flu. Norovirus infection can become severe without prompt medical attention. The highly contagious virus can be spread via food, water, contaminated surfaces, and close contact with infected persons. Thus, if you touch your mouth after coming in contact with a contaminated surface, or eat foods already contaminated by the virus, you might get infected.
The virus is considered the leading cause of food-borne illness in the United States and may be unintentionally transmitted by food workers to prepared food. Seafood such as oysters may also carry the virus.
The condition can be very discomforting. People infected with norovirus may start experiencing symptoms within 48hrs of infection. These may last a further 48 – 72hrs. Norovirus infection may be symptomized by:
- Body pain
- Stomach pains
See your doctor for prompt medical care if you experience one or more of these symptoms.
