According to the BBC News website, reported cases of the Winter vomiting bug,  Norovirus has hit more than 1.1 million people in England and Wales.

Although reported cases dipped over the Christmas break,  further cases are expected in the next few weeks, especially as work places and  schools get back after the Christmas break.

The NHS website states that the bug is highly contagious, and causes vomiting and diarrhoea. As there is no specific cure, you have to let it run its course, but it should not last more than a couple of days.

If you get norovirus, make sure you drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and practise good hygiene to help prevent it from spreading. It is important to maintain good hand hygiene to help prevent it spreading and stay away from hospitals, schools and care homes.

    I know of a few people who say they have had it. But before Christmas there was quite lot of people both adults and children with flu as in headache, temperature, aching limbs, cold, coughs and sore throats, and that generally hit each person in the household - apart from those who had previously had a flu jab.
    Can't they develop a vaccination for this Norovirus?
