    May I draw your attention to the unfortunate fact that here in the North East, this dreadful virus is rampant! All the hospitals have asked everyone to stay away, even for visiting, unless it’s an emergency ! It is VERY  infectious , it’s no use relying on hand sanitizer stuff, they are not effective , the only measure is to wash your hands in hot water with soap! All the hospitals agree with this. This virus makes you very ill, with sickness & Diarrhoea !  I don’t know if you have it in France, but if your visiting family over here you need to wash your hands frequently, especially after handling , shopping trolleys, the buses, door handles, money etc!   I’m not sure if this in everywhere in the UK , difficult to know.  It lasts around 48hours!  :-(   :negative:

    This site is well worth book marking for notifications and alerts across Europe

    I’m sure the same or similar thing is present in France also but it’s good to give people the advice.  You can never be too careful when touching stuff out in public in particular door handles, I’m slightly paranoid about it if I’m honest especially toilet door handles.  You wash your hands before leaving and then open the door with a germ riddled handle, all toilet doors should be automatic opening.

    Good site G if not a little scary.  I note the Noro Virus has been detected in Oysters from France.

    Yes that’s interesting because that  (Oysters) is being blamed for the possible cause of an outbreak in the local hospital we use, BH

    I had it when I worked at Hull Royal Infirmary, it really is not nice, one minute I was fine 10 minutes later , I was so ill, I caught it  through talking to someone that had it , close enough for her to breathe on me 24 hrs later I had it , it really is rampant the way it spreads.

    Nasty business, thanks to all for the info. Blue, this might sound silly, but I can’t imagine them having Oysters in a UK hospital, don’t know what makes me think that. :unsure:

    It has been muted as a possible cause, that or moules. tigre! They were not served in the  hospital!  That’s where the poor unfortunate patients ended up :cry: :cry: ! Mr BV needs a procedure at the hospital,but am very worried to let him attend, in case he gets this dreadful bug!

    top tip for avoiding this sort of thing.  Avoid contact with biohazards, aka children.   B-)

    S, Unfortunately Mrs BH as a teacher is not able to avoid that particular hazard and has picked up some awful bugs at school.

    Same here Shapeshifter and Breadhead. Our daughter works in a school and is forever suffering some ailment or other due to the rugrats.

    Thought it would have been odd Blue to have Oysters on an NHS menu, the ironic thing  is, they now believe it was started by a visitor bringing in Mussels for an inpatient.

    I had this 6 Christmas ago – it really is very nasty and spreads very quickly. My Mum started with it on Christmas Eve, we visited on Christmas Day and by Boxing Day evening I was struck down with it, followed by my husband the following morning. Hope to never have it again. :negative:

    Before we moved into our first house up here in the Frozen North, we had the builders in, the whole  lot came down with it, I researched it, and had to deep clean the whole house, as the bug stays on work tops  , door handles , loos etc! Yes it’s rampant up here, but we haven’t had any snow, only a week of minus temperatures, now it’s really mild , at 11/12 degs and it’s having a field day!  :-(
