Rota is a Rotavirus bacteria, a type of bacteria that causes acute diarrhea in children and is the main cause of diarrhea in young children globally. Rota is found in the stool of infected people and can be spread through contact with contaminated stool.
Symptoms of disease caused by Rota include:
- Diarrhea: usually watery diarrhea with yellow-green or green color.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Low fever.
- Abdominal pain and indigestion.
Rota disease is usually self-limiting and resolves within one to two weeks. However, in some severe cases, especially in young and weak children, the disease can cause dehydration and lead to dangerous complications such as electrolyte imbalance and severe dehydration.
Therefore, preventing Rota disease is very important. Vaccination against Rota is an effective measure to reduce the risk of disease and reduce the severity of the disease. In addition, maintaining good personal hygiene, washing hands frequently, and avoiding contact with the feces of people infected with Rota are also important prevention measures.
