Prevalance of Adenoviruses: The enteric adenovirus causes 5-20% of the gastroenteritis in young children, and is the second most common cause of gastroenteritis in this age group. By 4 years of age, 85% of all children have developed immunity to the disease. (Source: FDA Bad Bug Book)

About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Adenoviruses. The term 'prevalence' of Adenoviruses usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Adenoviruses at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Adenoviruses refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Adenoviruses diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
