Norovirus, also known as the ‘winter vomiting bug’, is the most common stomach bug in the UK. It can spread easily through close contact, or by contaminated surfaces, food or water.
The main symptoms of norovirus include a sudden onset of nausea, followed by projectile vomiting and diarrhoea, usually 1 to 2 days after becoming infected. Other common symptoms include a high fever, a headache and aching arms and legs.
Good hand hygiene is important to stop norovirus spreading.
