Food and Water Borne Infectious Diseases
Consuming contaminated food and water can lead to a variety of infections. Viruses or microbes may be the causative agents for this contamination. They typically cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Norovirus is found to be the most common causes of death due to foodborne illness. Norovirus usually causes only a mild illness, but because it affects so many people, it is among the top causes of death. Rotavirus is very common in children and it can cause severe diarrhoea and dehydration.
