NOROVIRUS: The HSE is asking people to be aware of the symptoms of norovirus and to learn how to help stop the spread of infection as cases of the virus are increasing in Ireland. Norovirus, also known as winter vomiting bug, is an easily spread virus that causes sudden onset of vomiting and diarrhoea. Young children and elderly people have been the most affected. Tips to prevent spread of Norovirus:- Frequent handwashing including before eating or preparing food and after using the bathroom. Thoroughly clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness by using a bleach-based household cleaner. Immediately remove and wash clothing or linens that may be contaminated with virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap). Flush or discard any vomit and/or faeces in the toilet and make sure that the surrounding area is kept clean. The public are being urged to visit the HSE website to find out more about the norovirus. CRY MONAGEA:
