I just asked you a question about vomiting and you said it

This answer was rated:

I just asked you a question about vomiting and you said it could be viral gastroenteritis or with drawal symptoms from codine and I was just wondering is it catchable?
No, not if it's viral and really not even if it were bacterial. If it were bacterial it could only be caught by someone else if you shared utensils, drinking glasses, toothbrushes or food that you had prepared yourself without gloves.
