In brief: Gastro
Gastroenteritis is usually caused by a virus and just like the flu is transmitted from person to person.
Unlike the flu, it is usually transmitted by poor hand hygeine. It can come in waves on certain communities and during certain tomes of year (spring/summer). Anyone can get gastroenteritis - prevention with good hand washing and food storage is key.
