Astrovirus

Heyhey
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.

Love your website. Could you do a "bug parade"? I've attended a couple of "bug parade" classes ... where we just scrolled through every "relevant" organism in a semester. Never been able to find a really good image of such a parade though, and you'd probably do an awesome job of it!
