    Who will they blame for that??

    Listening to the head of Public Health yesterday, amongst his comments was one saying it is estimated that one third of UK do NOT wash their hands after using the bathroom.

      Anyone who had had norovirus must be an idiot if they don’t wash their hands and use a tissue to open the lavatory door. It is a very unpleasant illness. I picked it up in a hospital.

              It goes airborne when people vomit so yes it could be..
              But it is mainly spread through personal contact.

                norovirus is spread via touch and can be airborne. this is why it’s so important to wash hands with soap and water regularly. If someone has the virus, doesn’t wash their hands after vomiting or having diarrhoea and they touch anything then it’s passed on to whomever touches the infected item.

                norovirus is just the new name for the winter bug. I think staff should serve you in the buffet at all times not just when there’s an outbreak.
                don't want to work, just want to cruise.

                  Apparently the ship was refused entry to Gibraltar, and will dock in Southampton. It has been reported that vomiting and diarrhoea can be early signs of the Coronavirus. Very worrying for those onboard, for once they’ll be relieved that it is Norovirus, as they’ll be allowed to go home and not be quarantined for 2 weeks.

                    We used to have Corona deliveries in the 1970's I loved the Dandelion & Burdock and Limeade.As a child I used to get excited when the delivery was due!
                    The original factory in Wales closed after Corona was taken over by Britvic and is now a recording studio called the Pop factory.

                        I was thinking they would try and blame the cruiseline.

                        Curious to know what the gender split is.
