In brief: Fever and diarrhea

The most common symptoms are fever, watery diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headache, and joint pains.
These symptoms can last 2-3 days and usually resolve without any treatment. Very rarely, the infection can enter the bloodstream and also cause meningitis and encephalitis. More severe manifestations are more likely to happen in the young, the elderly and the immune compromised.
