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?)

3. What are the treatments?
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.
