There is an error in the first sentence of the second paragraph under the subheading “Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT)” in the Results section. The correct sentence is: Three studies provided data on the effect for the primary outcome of hospitalization, which in meta-analysis, showed no significant difference between groups (RR 1.51, 95% CI 0.75, 3.03, I2 = 11%; Table 4; Fig 2).

There are several errors in Fig 2. Please see the corrected Fig 2 here.
