Two outbreaks of foodborne gastroenteritis caused by a small round structured virus: evidence of prolonged infectivity in a food handler.

Abstract

In two outbreaks of diarrhoea and vomiting that were caused by a small round structured virus (SRSV) that affected over 275 people, epidemiological and laboratory evidence showed that certain foods were the vehicles of infection and suggest that one of the chefs who prepared them may have been excreting this virus for a long time.
