Princess Margaret Norovirus

The Press - Norovirus closes Christchurch hospital wards - Ann-Marie's job has changed a bit recently with a norovirus hitting the hospital where she works. Pretty nasty stuff requiring staff and visitors to wear gloves, gowns and masks for a lot of the day, and undertake pretty intensive cleaning duties, and handle infection security issues to isolate infected wards.

As the newspaper article explains, one ward was intensively cleaned only to be reinfected shortly afterwards.
