Norovirus is a common type of virus which causes gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis refers to the inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. The infection spreads through contaminated food and water or through close contact with an infected person. Excessive consumption of junk food can be a major cause of norovirus infection. Norovirus can also spread through air. Intake of contaminated raw vegetables and fruits can cause norovirus infection as well, especially in people with a weak immune system. Norovirus infection can cause severe vomiting, diarrhoea, food poisoning, and abdominal pain which typically begins after twelve to forty-eight hours of exposure. The symptoms of norovirus stay for one to three days. Norovirus infection can also cause severe headache, body ache, high fever, and dehydration. Currently, there is no particular treatment available in the norovirus treatment market. In case of healthy people, the symptoms usually go on their own in a couple of days. Norovirus infections could be treated with consumption of plenty of fluids especially water and juices, to reduce the risk of dehydration. Intake of electrolyte powder is a common type of treatment option for norovirus infection. Sugary drinks should be strictly avoided to reduce the risk of diarrhea. Preventive steps like washing hands often with soap, washing raw fruits and vegetables thoroughly, proper cleanliness of the living areas, etc. help avoid the risk of norovirus infection.
