Astrovirus symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting fever, fever, and abdominal pain. The victim's body can be damaged caused by dehydration due to symptoms. Few reports of deaths related to Astrovirus are recorded.


Astrovirus primarily targets the very young and the very old. The majority of workers who are infected at work usually have a job that is around poultry or cats.


In order to defend yourself, do not consume infected meat or water. Wash your hands and don't breath in air that could be infected. There is a vaccination that helps with the symptoms. Treatments include taking standard antibiotics, sleep, and staying hydrated.
