Britons are being warned to remain indoors if feeling under the weather, as norovirus cases increase dramatically across the country over the recent weeks.UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has raised an alert, issuing a critical warning about the rise in norovirus infections.

The UKHSA mentioned that the presence of the highly contagious virus is unusually high for this period of the year and hasn't exhibited the usual trend of decrease during spring.This horrifying winter vomiting bug is wreaking havoc, resulting in acute diarrhoea and vomiting outbreaks.

According to reports, the health organisation disclosed a disturbing trend wherein confirmed norovirus cases have exploded to an astounding 75 percent above the average recorded over the past five years.Experts suggest the aftermath of Covid and the cold spell in May might be contributing to the stubborn persistence of this bug.

To control the spread, those affected by the illness are advised to maintain good hygiene and abstain from work, reports the Mirror.
