Causes infection: Norwalk virus is also know as norovirus, causes stomach upset with mostly vomiting and diarrhea. You can easily get the virus from one sick person to another, through droplets (coughing, sneezing), contaminated food, water, etc. No specific treatment. Usually most people will recover within 5 days.
