Norovirus in India: Corona epidemic was not completely eradicated in the country, a new problem is being heard. Two primary school students in Travancore Puram, Kerala were found to be infected with the Noro virus. Vomiting, diarrhea and fever are the symptoms of this disease. The norovirus is highly contagious and spreads through contaminated food, water and surfaces. Kerala Health Department officials said that samples of some more patients have been sent for testing. Initially, it was thought that the food distributed in the schools caused food poisoning among the students.
Education Minister V. Shiven Kitty has called a meeting of officials to consider what steps should be taken to secure the mid-day mail. In November last year, more than a dozen students at a veterinary college in Waynead became infected with the virus.
Statement by the Minister of Health – No worries.
According to Kerala Health Minister Veena George, two cases of norovirus have been confirmed in Vajnajam. No need to worry. The health department has reviewed the situation. Samples from the area have been collected and tested and necessary steps are being taken. Both children are in stable condition.
