A huge gastro outbreak has left more than 1,000 people in hospital. 

Emergency departments in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, were flooded with 1142 patients with gastroenteritis.

Around 600 cases were treated at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

comment:  What caused this?  I am trying to track some sort of "stomach flu" in the U.S.  This is simply too many people to have got this at the nearest Buffet .

Dang we did not have too much stomach virus at our school this year, and we have had really bad years. I would be interested in what caused this because we may get it back this fall/winter here in the U.S.
