Rotavirus is a disease that commonly infects infants and young children causing severe, watery diarrhea and vomiting (puking). People become infected by putting unwashed/contaminated (with poop) hands into your mouth, by eating contaminated food or by touching contaminated objects (toys) and then putting your fingers/hand in mouth.
