The following is a list that shows how many cases of a food borne illness there was and when.

9/22/15 :arrow: 0 cases
9/23/15 :arrow: 3 cases
9/24/15 :arrow: 18 cases
9/25/15 :arrow: 4 cases
9/26/15 :arrow: 0 cases

What kind of epidemic is this?
(Did I word that correctly enough?)

1. The winter vomiting bug is norovirus.
2. Polymerase chain reaction assays are used to diagnose it.
3. Treatments generally focus on the mitigation of symptoms rather than the elimination of the infection. They provide measures to manage dehydration and mitigate symptoms using antiemetics.

By onset time, do you mean time until onset or how long symptoms last?

I mean how long it takes for symptoms to appear after ingesting the disease.

I'm not Tailsfan101, but according to this source the onset time for listeria is 9-48 hrs for gastrointestinal symptoms and 2-6 weeks for the invasive disease.
