Note the six leading causes of death in Canadian hospitals are stroke, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, sepsis and heart attack. Never mind how many people even get more sick in a Hospital. Gastroenteritis (also known as gastro, gastric flu, tummy bug and stomach flu, (although unrelated to influenza) is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, involving both the stomach and the small intestine (see also gastritis and enteritis) and resulting in acute diarrhea or by severe vomiting.. Infectious gastroenteritis which can often be seasonally common even in Hospitals now too may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. And it is important to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections in regard to the treatment as well.. Bacteria, and parasites can be treated with antibiotics but Viruses do not respond to antibiotics . Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric gastroenteritis. Norovirus gastroenteritis can cause significant morbidity and mortality among children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised.
HEALTH CARE STILL NEEDS TO BE SERIOUSLY IMPROVED FOR ALL CANADIANS
