Título Viral gastroenteritis aboard a cruise ship
Información bibliográfica 21 Oct. 1989, Vol.2, No.8669, p.961-965. Illus. 33 ref.
Resumen 237 passengers (22%) and 28 crew members (3%) on a cruise ship were infected with viral gastroenteritis (vomiting and/or diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, headache, myalgia, fever) on a transatlantic crossing. Epidemiological findings indicate that vomitus was an important factor in the transmission of the disease, and therefore strategies for prevention of the disease should include protection against environmental contamination by viruses in airborne droplets or vomitus.
