Rotavirus, we filter that.
ROTAVIRUSES are wheel-shaped (“rota-“) viruses that cause intestinal illnesses and are the most common cause of severe diarrhea among infants and children. Before introduction of a rotavirus vaccine in 2006, about 55,000 to 70,000 children were hospitalized from rotavirus infections each year in the United States. Worldwide, more than 600,000 children die from rotavirus infections annually. Rotaviruses are found in every part of the United States and throughout the world. The virus may be found in water sources such as private wells that have been contaminated with the feces from infected humans. Waste can enter the water through different ways, including sewage overflows, sewage systems that are not working properly, and polluted storm water runoff. Gross! Wells may be more vulnerable to such contamination after flooding, particularly if the wells are shallow, have been dug or bored, or have been submerged by floodwater for long periods of time.
