Blackburn is less than 45 miles away from where I live.
If there were 150,000 dead people from Norovirus in the county of Lancashire - where Blackburn is situated, believe me, I'd know about it by now.
Its not the case.

It is possible to die from this, if you don't drink your fluids.

neformore, as you live so close by you can verify this - i can give you the name of the funeral home and the details of where the funeral and service will take place on tuesday - you don't live very far so you can discuss what the coroner told my my directly with her - i'm sure she could provide you with the coroner's details and you could discuss it with him.
150,000 doesn't really sound too much when spread over several weeks. perhaps some opinionated member here could find that out and report back. personally, i have arrangements to make for going back to the uk and a funeral to attend so i'm a little too busy and to do it myself.
