Significant increase in the number of norovirus cases in UK

UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has revealed that norovirus cases are 47 percent higher now than the five-year average pre Covid.

The NHS says symptoms of norovirus known as the 'winter vomiting bug'  include feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

Other symptoms are experience a high temperature, headaches and aching arms and legs.

People mostly affected by the outbreak fall into two categories: people over the age of 65 and children under the age of five.

Most people can tend to their illness at home by drinking plenty of fluids, such as water, and resting.

Norovirus can spread between people fairly easily, especially if an infected person is in close contact with somebody else.
