[edit]

Animals and humans

Fecal-oral and usually person-to-person but sometimes via contaminated water, food, or shellfish. Airborne respiratory transmission is possible.[1]

1-3 days[2]

Rotavirus was estimated to be the cause of 37 deaths annually when data were extrapolated to the US population [3]

Rotavirus was estimated to be the cause of ~60,000 hospitalizations annually when data were extrapolated to the US population.[3]

Duration of Infectiousness and disease

Symptomology

Symptoms of infected individuals include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Loss of appetite and dehydration are also common, and especially harmful to infants and young children.[2]

Latency

Asymptomatic Rates

Excretion Rates (see Exposure)

Immunity
