How is norovirus infection treated?

Posted on July 28, 2015 11:29 am under Food Defects

Norovirus infection is a highly contagious gastrointestinal disease caused by norovirus – a pathogen present in food contaminated with fecal matter. Individuals with this disease suffered from an irritated gastrointestinal tract, causing them to suffer from diarrhea, nausea, among many other signs and symptoms.

Because norovirus infection is a viral disease, antibiotics provide no help in treating this condition. Usually, norovirus infection is a self-limiting condition that lasts one to three days upon exposure. Individuals with this condition are advised to drink plenty of fluids to replenish what was lost from diarrhea and vomiting.

Norovirus infection may not only cause unanticipated medical costs and lost time at work, it may also endanger the lives of your loved ones, especially the young children and the elderly. If norovirus infection has caused you harm, and the infection has been a result of food prepared in an unsanitary way at a restaurant in Milwaukee, speak with an attorney at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® to know more about the possibility of filing a claim.
