According to health officials the disease is heralded by symptoms like fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes yellow eyes or skin and dark urine. It is spread when a person eats, drinks, or touches their mouth with food, liquid, or objects (including their hands) that have come into contact with stool from an infected person.
