Norovirus closes two wards11th March 2009
An outbreak of the winter vomiting bug has forced health chiefs to close two wards at the Great Western hospital in Swindon.
The vomiting and diarrhoea Norovirus bug has meant there have not been any new admissions or ward transfers at the hospital. It is the first outbreak suffered by the Great Western since November last year. The Norovirus bug is highly contagious and spread through contaminated surfaces. In 2007 more than three million people in the UK contracted it.
