In brief: Fluid out both ends.

Vomiting and watery diarrhea since the infection (typically caused by a virus) affects the stomach ("gastro" aspect) and small intestines ("enter" aspect).
If it affect only the stomach (exclusively vomiting), then it's a "gastritis". If its only the small intestines (diarrhea only), then it's an "enteritis".
