Rotavirus Gastroenteritis is a viral infection caused by the Rotavirus. The incubation period for the Rotavirus disease is approximately 2 days.

Symptoms suffered often include:

  • Vomiting
  • Watery diarrhoea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal pain

It can lead to long term symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Rotaviruses are transmitted by the faecal-oral route. Spread from person-to-person through contaminated hands is probably the most common way in which Rotaviruses are transmitted in close communities. Infected food handlers may contaminate foods that require handling and no further cooking, such as salads, fruits, and hors d'oeuvres.
