Trends of viral gastroenteritis in the Australian Capital Territory

Ford, Laura; McEwen, Samuel; Glass, Kathryn

Description

Rotavirus, norovirus and adenovirus are common gastroenteritis viruses. To investigate trends of these viruses in the Australian Capital Territory, we analysed routine laboratory data and institutional outbreak data from 2003-2015. We found that after the introduction of rotavirus vaccination, there was a reduction in the proportion positivity in hospitalised cases and young children overall, but little change in cases referred by general practitioners.
