English term or phrase: Rotavirus
This is for a hospital brochure about the rotavirus and what sort of symptoms it can cause. "Rota" means "wheel", so I'm thinking of translating it as "virut hinh banh xe" but I wonder if someone out there has a better medical dictionary and can give me an accepted translation for it? Thanks!
