Some do: Rotovirus is an intestinal virus with variable symptoms and duration. Generally lasting 3-8 days, the affected kid may develop dehydration & acidosis requiring hospital based care or have a brief mild illness and self recover.
Dr. Garron Miller

Depends: Depends. Sometimes it is over in 24 hours other times the loose stools may last over a week. Key thing is to stay hydrated with fluids. Follow up with your dr. If decrease wet diapers or urination (<3 per day), or lethargy. A vaccine is now out for rotovirus. It is given between the ages of 2mo to 6mo, and helps prevent the illness.
