Giantmicrobes: Rotavirus

GIANTmicrobes are stuffed representations of actual microbes. They are a fun and creative way to start the discussion about microbes.

Rotavirus is one of the most common viruses among children. Fortunately, new vaccines are helping put a stop to this wheel of misfortune. The name rotavirus comes from the circular shape of the virus, and the Latin: rota=wheel.Its signature symptom is severe diarrhea, often accompanied by fever and nausea – and it is often called “stomach flu” (though it is not related to the flu virus).
