The Global Burden of Norovirus & Prospects for Vaccine Development

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

Each year, norovirus causes over 200,000 deaths and a global economic burden of more than $60 billion. A highly contagious virus that most people will contract 5 times in their lifetime, the most serious outcomes of the disease – hospitalization and death – are far more common among children and the elderly, and in low and middle income countries. In this PLOS Collection global norovirus experts fill critical knowledge gaps and provide key information to further development of a much-needed vaccine.
