Maybe nothing but it seems like "out-breaks" are becoming a common occurance. Justs a heads up to ATS, also of interest is that my wife works at these care facilities and she says it spread faster than anything she has ever seen and facilities that are not even related to one another are having out-breaks as well.

Thats because that is what this virus does. It spreads quickly. Me and my family had it a few weeks ago, nothing to serious, just alot of vomitting and feeling crap. In both the kids schools, hundreds of kids went off sick over the 2 week period before Christmas.

No conspiracy here, it's a winter virus, has always been a winter virus and always comes in winter. Seeing as it's winter, no shock there.

Yep its quite a nasty virus and does spread like wild fire.
I worked in a hospital for 3yrs. It was horrendous, staff were dropping like flies. Everyone had it eventually. I think once its out there its unstoppable. It only takes someone not to wash there hands and its every were. I try and avoid public transport when things like this rear there ugly head!


And yes it is a regular thing now a days in the winter months.

We get sudden rapid outbreaks of norovirus in the UK too. Every winter without fail! It's probably because we spent a lot more time in confined spaces in the cold weather but also more people are admitted to hospital in the winter for various reason so it will spread very easily to people already ill with something else. Central heating plays a part too as it dries out your airways meaning there is little to resist it entering your system.
It's a nasty virus but just one of those things.

Where's the numbers?Just news? What do you think the spin is?
I think "outbreak" needs to be defined here. Article says "reared its ugly head". dose not seem too serious. No?

...its the misue of central heating, imo... down here (south texas), when it drops to 60ish, idiots crank up their heaters to 72 or more... thats insane, considering that we pay a fortune to keep cool most of the year... and they never open their windows to air out the house, just keep re-circulating the same old stale air...

Thats a good point, I should have pointed out that many have the heating up too high and that there is no circulation of the air as they also keep all their windows shut ALL the time.... I'm one of those people that has a window or two open all winter, I get headaches from even low central heating. My kids hate me

I picked up the rotovirus, probably similar, last year. My son was fine while we took off to go Christmas shopping. He ended up throwing up in the car. We pulled over, before we started to clean him up, he threw up again. He ended up having the worst diarrhea I have ever seen. I caught it from him. It was a miserable two weeks. The worst part is, these types of viruses are deadly to children.

I know that if I have vomitting and diahhrea, I need to drink lots of water and electrolytes. How do you tell a [then] two year old? It's bad stuff.

done allot of training for norovirus at work (a major hotel chain that i wont name). every member of staff is trained to deal with it. its nothing particularly worrying but it can be past on very easily. and the last thing you want in a hotel is a mass breakout of norovirus..... it doesn't do your reputation to have a hotel full of sick people lol

This virus sucks.
Never in my life have I felt more sick or spent more time hugging the toilet bowl.



I've only had it once and it wasnt a nice experience.

Had it last year, right about now I think. I called it the double bucket flu. One to sit on, one to lean over. Got sick right after work at the end of the week, got well just in time to make work Monday morning. Could not even squeeze a short vacation out of it.


My advice to people who get it. Never look, just flush.

My little nephew had rotovirus when he was real little. You're right about it being some of the worst diarrhea. It's horrible lol. It's like the scene from the exorcist except not coming out of the mouth.



My brother I think got Norovirus last year, ended up being him, his son and girlfriend.

Thank you for posting.

No conspiracy there...

I certainly don't read American MSM until someone links to it.

American MSM seemingly has perpetual Norwalk Virus and they don't even realize it.

Yes viruses spread like weeds in a field. WIth the billions of people on earth what do you expect? We get a virus and do not stay home,we go to the store, the bank, post office, we fly we spread. we send our children to school to help spread it.We are a society that has a need to go out into public we are so bored. We cannot heed the Physicians request, go home stay in the housee until it passes. We cannot be stationary for even 2 days...If and when depopulation is enacted this will be easy to accomplish, because we cnanot stay home.
