Norovirus Infects Hundreds At Cheerleading Event

It has been recently revealed that after a recent cheerleading event, there have been more than 200 people left with the Norovirus infection. This was revealed according to reports from the Public Health Laboratories.

Adults as well as children have been infected by the onset of this virus. Norovirus seems to have affected a lot of people across the country, this year, and there is need for effective measures to be taken to bring this trend down a notch.

It is actually a highly contagious disease, and can tend to keep a person in bed for weeks together. It has various symptoms such as stomach aches, diarrhea, and losing fluids from the body. It was revealed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that there is need for staying protected from the disease. One and all need to make combined efforts to keep safe and protected from the disease.

There is need for people to safeguard themselves from the disease, with effective vaccination. The event was held by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and it was a cheerleading competition. People from different places had come to be a part of the event, and this is where there might’ve been infectiously transmitted from one person to another.

It is essential that care is taken while such highly populated events take place in the time to come.

There is further need for spreading prevention measures about the disease. Hand washing is one of the best possible ways to keep away from the disease. It can also be helped by keeping the surrounding clean and disinfected. People, who are affected by the disease, can do a favor on others, by covering their mouth, every time they cough or sneeze, because this is one of the commonest forms of spreading infection.
