What are the causes of norovirus infection?

Posted on July 27, 2015 11:52 am under Premises Liability

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), norovirus is among the most common causes of disease outbreaks in the country. CDC said that every year, norovirus is responsible for 19 to 21 million cases of gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and the intestines). Norovirus infection also accounts for 400,000 emergency department visits and 1.7 to 1.9 outpatient visits in the country annually.

Eating food and drinking water contaminated with fecal matter are among the many causes of norovirus outbreaks. People exposed to foods that have been handled in an unsanitary manner during preparation in restaurants are at risk. Similarly, defective food products contaminated during manufacturing and packaging at food processing plants also pose risk of norovirus infection.

If a damaging norovirus infection or any other disorders have been a result of another party’s negligence, you might be eligible to file a case in order to seek justice and compensation.
