Description

Norovirus test is intended to CHECK YOUR GENETIC RESISTANCE TO NOROVIRUS.

Norovirus (winter vomiting bug) is a highly contagious virus that causes vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. Norovirus is the group of RNA-containing viruses that belong to the Caliciviridae family. Norwalk virus is the only species of the genus Norovirus. Serotypes, strains and isolates include Norwalk virus; Hawaii virus; Snow Mountain virus; Mexico virus; Desert Shield virus; Southampton virus; Lordsdale virus and Wilkinson virus. The RNA genome in noroviruses easily mutates to produce new norovirus types.

Viruses in Norovirus are non-enveloped, with icosahedral geometries.

Noroviruses are the common cause of gastroenteritis (90% of cases).

The virus is transmitted:

  • by fecally contaminated food or water;
  • by person-to-person contact (in 62-84% of cases) via aerosolization of vomited virus and subsequent contamination of surfaces.

Symptoms

Symptoms of norovirus infection include:

  • nausea – usually the first symptom;
  • vomiting – sometimes violent and sudden (more common for children);
  • stomachache (abdominal pain);
  • abdominal pain or cramps;
  • watery or loose nonbloody diarrhea;
  • suddenly feeling unwell and lethargic (malaise);
  • fatigue;
  • fever and chills, usually mild;
  • myalgias (body aches);
  • headache;
  • loss of taste and appetite;
  • tachycardia (fast heart rate);
  • arterial hypotension;
  • the absence of tenderness of the abdominal wall;
