Norovirus, winter vomitting bug, please take care Dibbers

According to my [retired nursing sister] sis in law this years Norovirus [winter vomiting bug] is particularly bad. Claims are anti-bacterial and hand sanitiser doesn't help, apparently a bleach solution will kill the bug.

My parents were terribly ill last week with this bug, to top it off my 92 year old da was admitted to Dryburn Hospital (18 years on I still can't think of it as University hospital of north Durham) early hours of Friday with pneumonia and a urine infection (he's catherterised). Luckily I avoided the bug, or so I thought, until I became very sick today, I ache all over, including my eyeballs, hubs has been a great help.

Please take good care to keep this nasty bug away from you/yours, perhaps wiping down with a bleach solution

I hope you feel better soon. I was off work with it last week and I still don't feel right, luckily I managed not to pass it around the family.

Thank you for this, norovirus in itself is nasty let alone a super strain .
Please remember all if you get it wipe the toilet handle and taps and door handles with bleach solution, people can forget this bit especially if you are weakened by the bug .
I have unfortunately been very unlucky and have had norovirus twice, salmonella and campylobacter mainly due to the job I was in .
It really is nasty especially for the immune surpressed.
