From anyone.: Rotavirus is a highly contagious disease. Can be spread anywhere, but more often in crowded situations, such as day cares and schools. Good handwashing and staying away from the sick are the only effective measures. Antibiotics do not work here.
Dr. William Singer
Pediatric Neurology 51 years experience
Yes: Rotavirus causes diarrhea in young children, which may lead to dehydration. Speak to your doctor about prevention and treatment options.
