In NSW an especially high number of under-fives sought medical treatment for gastro throughout this year and a gastroenteritis outbreak of both Children and Educators at more than 100 childcare centres prompted a NSW Health warning.

Symptoms of gastroenteritis include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, abdominal pain, headache and muscle aches. They can take up to three days to develop and usually last between one or two days, sometimes longer.
