NZ Visitor Warning: Another Outbreak of Norovirus

Posted by te2ataria on October 17, 2008

New Zealand Health Bulletin # 21. Another Outbreak of Norovirus

Following several cases of food poisoning, warnings have been issued about norovirus contamination of shellfish from the Kerikeri Inlet in the Bay of Islands.

North Island, NZ

A number of people from Auckland and Northland recently became ill after consuming oysters harvested in the Bay of Islands.

Norovirus is a bacteria found in human feces.  Marine contamination occurs when raw sewage is discharged into coastal waters.  The common symptoms of illness from norovirus include nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, chills and aching muscles.

Reports also say high levels of a toxic species of phytoplankton were detected at Tapeka Point in the Bay of Islands, last week.

Meanwhile, two people were killed and at least a dozen others were sickened by an outbreak of norovirus in an Auckland nursing home.

South Island

Separate outbreaks of norovirus have been reported. An outbreak on campus of Lincoln University [you would have thought they teach their kids to wash their hands after toilet by the time they reach university age] in Canterbury has affected dozens of students.
