Noroviruses (NoVs) give rise to clinically relevant gastroenteritis in all age groups and are widely distributed in both clinical and environmental settings. NoVs are classified into five genogroups (GI to GV), of which GI, GII and GIV infect humans. While data on the epidemiology of human NoVs GI and GII have been steadily increasing, very little information has been published on the spread of GIV in either the health care system or the environment, resulting in a lack of information about its… CONTINUE READING
