Sickness bug shuts four wards

21st November 2008

Four wards have been closed to new patients at the University Hospital in Coventry after an outbreak of a winter vomiting bug.

The hospital urged non-essential visitors to stay away from the site. Workers and patients on eight wards - including the four that were closed - have been affected by norovirus and the hospital has considered transferring some convalescents to the Hospital St Cross in Rugby which is free of the virus. University Hospital medical director Dr Richard Kennedy confirmed that the outbreak was "serious".
