What Is A Norovirus Infection?

According to Mother Nature Network, norovirus is responsible for most "stomach bugs" in the U.S., but it is not related to influenza in any way. According to the CDC, noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause up to 21 million cases of acute gastroenteritis each year. Norovirus is spread through eating contaminated food or water. You can also contract the virus from touching contaminated surfaces, being in close contact with someone who has the virus or by shaking hands, touching or sharing food or utensils. Researchers have found that noroviruses can survive on surfaces for as long as 42 days. Noroviruses don't respond to antibiotics and doctors typically recommend rest and plenty of fluids. Most people recover within a few days.
