I’m wondering when the Norvirus will hit one of our schools in Thanet as hard as the Simon Langton Boys School in Canterbury with 300 pupils struck down. Chatham House School has more information on its website.
It’s not just schools. A business colleague from London tells me that over the last week he’s had both his nursery age children down with the bug, which causes, fever, vomiting and chronic diahorrea.
The virus tend to clear up within 48 hours. Parents are advised to keep their children away from school and give them paracetamol and plenty of fluid.
