Noroviruses are small, highly infectious and very resistant viruses. They are the main cause of acute gastroenteritis, especially during the winter epidemic period. They are mainly transmitted by the faecal-oral route, directly from person to person, or indirectly by the ingestion of contaminated food (such as shellfish for example).
