Rotavirus

http://www.cdc.gov/rotavirus/index.html

Hosts

Animals and humans

Transmission/Exposure Routes

Fecal-oral and usually person-to-person but sometimes via contaminated water, food, or shellfish. Airborne respiratory transmission is possible (Wikipedia)

Incubation Times

1-3 days (CDC)

Case Fatality Ratios

Rotavirus was estimated to be the cause of 37 deaths annually when data were extrapolated to the US population (Fischer et al, 2007).

Burden of Disease

Rotavirus was estimated to be the cause of ~60,000 hospitalizations annually when data were extrapolated to the US population (Fischer et al, 2007).

Duration of Infectiousness and disease

Symptomology

Latency

Asymptomatic Rates

Excretion Rates (see Exposure)

Immunity

Microbiology

A genus of double-stranded RNA virus in the family Reoviridae|Resistant to disinfection.

Recommended Dose Response Model


Dose response models for Rotavirus
