Shortly after eating at a local Chipotle restaurant location this past weekend, over 100 Boston College students reported nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Health authorities have since confirmed that a norovirus infection was the specific cause for the Boston Chipotle outbreak.

The Boston Herald is now reporting that 120 Boston College students are sick with a norovirus infection. This number is up from 80 cases as of Tuesday afternoon.

The Boston Public Health Commission confirms the illnesses are due to the norovirus, not E. coli, as previously suspected.

NPR explained that Norovirus is sometimes overlooked, because it is less likely to kill you than disease-causing forms of E. Coli or salmonella. But it is by far the most common source of foodborne illness, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
