My name is Astrovirus.
Astroviridae is my family.
I have star-like points that gave me my astronomical name.
I move around through fecal-oral transmission.
I love kids, daycare workers and soldiers.
I also like the elderly and people with poor immune systems.
I cause gastroenteritis with diarrhoea, pain and vomiting.
I am milder than my friends Norovirus and Rotavirus.
I won't dehydrate you as much.
