Christmas parties spread norovirus21st December 2012
Norovirus expert Professor Ian Clarke has warned that Christmas parties are causing the winter vomiting bug to spread rapidly.
The Professor of Molecular Microbiology and Virology at the University of Southampton said that people can remain contagious until three weeks after they have recovered and those who may still be infections are almost certainly spreading the bug at parties by kissing and hugging others. Latest figures show that the number of people affected by the illness is 83% higher than this time last year.
