Norovirus hits the Olympic Games

February 9, 2018

Eighty-six cases of a norovirus have been confirmed at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

The Korean Centre for Disease Control and Prevention director Kim Hyun-jun said there were a number of cases at the Odaesan Youth Centre, the police office and at the media accommodation village.

No athletes have been affected.

Norovirus is highly contagious and the peak season for norovirus is January and February so it is a bad time to start.

Norovirus can result in vomiting and diarrhoea, and those affected are encouraged to drink fluids to avoid dehydration.
