      It is transmitted by bodily fluids such as blood, vomit or faeces. It then gets into the body and causes the symptoms of fever and vomitting etc

      I believe it is a very extreme fever and causes severe dehydration

      As the guys have said it can be passed through human contact or through the contact of bodily fluids and causes alot of pain and suffering too. Hopefully we can find a cure for it soon.
