Norovirus Outbreaks

Humans are the only host of norovirus, and norovirus has several mechanisms that allow it to spread quickly and easily. [15] Norovirus infects humans in a pathway similar to the influenza virus’ mode of infection. [5, 15, 33] Norovirus is able to survive a wide range of temperatures and in many different environments. [15, 33] Moreover, norovirus can spread quickly, especially in places where people are in close proximity, such as cruise ships and airline flights, even those of short duration. [14, 15]
