Norovirus is severe this winter

 

What is commonly called 'stomach flu' has nothing to do with influenza and is really norovirus. When family members or co-workers have sudden attacks of inflamed intestines and bouts of vomiting and diarrhea, it is probably cases of norovirus. Most people get better in two or three days but norovirus is highly contagious during and after the obvious symptoms.

The Washington Post writer Lena H. Sun has written an article that is timely reading for this season. You should take a few moments to click on the following link to read this article. And, I hope you will share this information.

 

Dreaded ‘stomach flu’ wreaks havoc on families — and it’s only going to get worse

Not something I want to have to personally deal with. With children visiting often, I am constantly exposed to something. Fingers crossed for a healthy winter!

I sure hope I escape this virus this year. I have been doing a lot of handwashing.

Hi Roy.  This is the same virus that makes folks sick on cruise ships.  It's really getting much more prevalent in recent years.

Roy- this may have been what my husband's daughter got over the holidays.  Thankfully, when we saw her just this week while she was visiting in Naples, FL, she was on the mend.

I've been fortunate to stay healthy and rarely get colds and I don't think I've ever had the flu but this one sounds nasty! This is very educational! For what it costs to go to the doctor, it's best to try to stay healthy. Thanks for looking out for everyone. I hope you and Dolores stay healthy too!

I've been around so many sick people so far this winter. I've been battling a bug for almost a week. It hasn't gotten me yet, but I've had to work hard to stay on top of it to keep from getting really sick.
