Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis can be very painful
Gastroenteritis

Infection of the gastrointestinal tract triggered by viruses (noro-, rota-, adeno-, coronaviruses) or bacteria (Clostridium difficile, Campylobacter, salmonellae, etc.). Also, protozoans such as amoeba or lamblia cause gastroenteritis. Due to the destruction of the intestinal mucosa or the formation of bacterial toxins, food cannot be digested sufficiently. Generally, gastroenteritis also involves diarrhoea and vomiting. 

The classical transmission path is the faecal-oral Smear infection. Appropriate hygiene measures such as Hand disinfection prevent the spread of the pathogens.
