In brief: Stomach bug

Viral gastroenteritis is medical lingo for a stomach bug.
The virus attaches to the cells of the GI tract causing it to increase secretion or inhibit absorption leading to vomiting diarrhea. It tends to be very infectious ANS spreads through areas of close contacts. Good handwashing is a must.

In brief: Stomach flu

Gastroenteritis (viral) occurs in the gastris (stomach) and enteris (small intestine).
It occurs when a virus arrives to the stomach and small intestines and prevails the local immune system that leads to its multiplication and invasion of the cells in the stomach and guts resulting in the symptoms of nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc.
