Have him take one immodium twice a day, not just after a bowel movement, until it subsides.
If that doesn't help the doctor can give him prescription loperadine which is an opiate and boy will that stop it.
Have him stay on a bland diet.  It could be that the foods he's eating are causing the diarrhea because the virus may have inflamed the intestine.
Have him stay away from alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, icey drinks, fresh vegetables, high fiber... until it subsides.

Just a thought...
