The Kerala government reported two Norovirus infections in youngsters on Sunday. The virus is a very contagious virus that spreads through contaminated water and food.
Moreover, because of the virus’s virulent nature, the Kerala government has urged residents to practice good hygiene.
“Two youngsters have been infected with the virus, but their health is stable. There is no need to be alarmed at this time, but everyone should be cautious and keep their surroundings clean” Veena George, Kerala’s health minister, told the news agency.
Norovirus is a common virus that causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea when it infects people. The virus is also known as stomach flu or stomach bug because of its effect on the gastrointestinal system of the body.
The virus can affect everyone, not just children. These viruses have a reputation for fast-spreading through contaminated foods and surfaces.
