Rotavirus infections (praktyczny angielski)
Rotaviruses are a leading cause of severe diarrhea and dehydration among infants and young children. They cause the death of about 600 000 children worldwide annually. The rotavirus is highly contagious among children. It is transmitted by the faecal-oral and, possibly, respiratory route. Almost all kids have had a rotavirus infection by the age of five, but the most symptomatic episodes occur in children between the ages of 3 months and 2 years.
