'Cruise Ship Virus' Also Sickens 1 Million US Kids Yearly
U.S. News & World Report
Norovirus is a viral illness that can affect anyone, according to the CDC. It commonly causes nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and stomach cramps.
Ed Rybicki's insight:

And if 1 million kids in the US are sickened - what about the rest of the world?  I  know it's unscientific, but extrapolating from US flu death figures - 40 000 a year vs 400 000 worldwide - that means 10 million+ cases a year worldwide MINIMUM, mostly in the developing world.  Of whom far more will be seriously ill and die, given medical care in ddeveloping countries is poor.  We really, really need some vaccines.
