Norovirus is highly infectious and tends to occur in clusters, or “outbreaks”. It spreads from one person to another through direct or indirect contact with infected feces or vomit.
More rarely, it can also be transmitted by drinking water, which contains the virus, or by eating food contaminated by this virus.
