The stomach flu, also known as viral gastroenteritis, is an infection that affects the gastrointestinal tract.

However, it is important to note that viral gastroenteritis is not related to the influenza virus that causes respiratory flu.

Viral gastroenteritis is typically caused by several different viruses, including norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, and astrovirus.

These viruses can be easily transmitted from person to person through close contact, contaminated food or water, or contaminated surfaces.
