What is norovirus?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, norovirus is a contagious infection. It causes diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain. Public Health England said, “It can easily spread through contact with infected people or contaminated surfaces, but only a few of those infected can make another person sick.” Public Health England has described it as a ‘winter vomiting bug’ and usually attacks during the winter months. Most infections are caused by contact with sick people or contaminated surfaces or consumption of contaminated food or drink. Norovirus is very contagious and causes vomiting, diarrhoea, although this usually goes away in a few days. According to the CDC, people infected with this contagious virus recover within 1-3 days of infection.
