Norovirus also called as vomiting bug, is a stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhoea. It can be very unpleasant, but usually goes away in about 2 days.Kerala has been put on alert after at least 13 cases of norovirus have been recorded in Wayanad district.The infection was reported in some 13 students of a veterinary college in Pookode near Vythiri in Wayanad district two weeks ago.As State health minister Veena George asked people to be vigilant, here’s a look at what the virus is, its symptoms and what can be done to treat it.
The main symptoms of norovirus are: 1. Feeling sick (nausea) 2. Diarrhoea 3. Being sick (vomiting)
You may also have: 1. A high temperature 2. A headache 3. Aching arms and legs
The symptoms start suddenly within 1 to 2 days of being infected.
You can catch norovirus from:
1. Close contact with someone with norovirus 2. Touching surfaces or objects that have the virus on them, then touching your mouth 3. Eating food that’s been prepared or handled by someone with norovirus Washing your hands frequently with soap and water is the best way to stop it spreading. Alcohol hand gels do not kill norovirus.
Treatment: You can usually treat yourself or your child at home. The most important thing is to rest and have lots of fluids to avoid dehydration.
