Abstract

Although deaths are often reported in the context of norovirus outbreaks, clinical and epidemiologic characteristics of the decedents prior to death are not well established. Through a literature review of published reports of deaths associated with norovirus infection, we identified and summarized 158 norovirus-associated deaths in 12 countries from 1988 to 2011.
