Wards closed at Swindon

3rd March 2010

An outbreak of the norovirus winter vomiting bug has led to the closure of three wards at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon.

Hospital bosses are warning people who have had diarrhoea or vomiting symptoms that they should not visit the hospital until they have been free of the virus for 48 hours. 

The norovirus bug is a highly infectious condition with between 600,000 and one million people in the UK of all ages affected by it each year.
