Were you looking for information about Rotavirus? Rodavirus is a common misspelling of rotavirus.
Rotavirus is responsible for approximately 5 to 10 percent of all cases of diarrhea among children under 5 years of age. The virus may also cause symptoms such as vomiting, upset stomach, and high fever. Rotavirus, which is found in the stools of infected people, can be transmitted through ingestion of contaminated food or water and direct contact with contaminated surfaces. There is no medication that will kill the virus; treatment goals are focused on providing supportive care (relieving symptoms) while the body fights the infection.
