In brief: Generally not
Similar to other viruses which infect the GI tract, but the nausea, vomiting, fever and respiratory symptoms may be slightly worse.
Children will be lethargic, not have much appetite, and may develop low grade liver inflammation. Serious complications are almost entirely related to dehydration, imbalance of electrolytes, and acidosis. Often lasts 8-10 days and rarely requires hospitalization.
