Norovirus Infection in South Korea

The following background information on Norovirus infection in South Korea was abstracted from Gideon and the Gideon e-book series. [1-3]  A computer-generated parsing program of PubMeD and ProMED identifies 22,521 published Infectious Diseases outbreaks.  735 of these outbreaks specify Norovirus as the disease agent.  South Korea accounts for 0.67% of all outbreaks, and for 1.5% of Norovirus outbreaks.  Details of the individual events are summarized in table 1.

Further analysis of these sources identified 59,774 prevalence / seroprevalence surveys.  745 of these surveys examine the prevalence of viral agents associated with gastroenteritis.  South Korea accounts for 18.6% of all Infectious Disease surveys, and 3.4% of surveys involving viral gastroenteritis. Details of surveys which examine Norovirus prevalence are summarized in table 2.
