Researchers in Canada have concluded that Norovirus can spread by air, according to a publication in the highly respected Clinical Infectious Diseases.
Eight doctors participated in a study of Norovirus and determined that Norovirus can be transmitted in an airborne form. They published an article titled “Detection and Quantification of Airborne Norovirus During Outbreaks in Healthcare Facilities.”
A reporter for HealthDay News / U.S. News and World Report wrote an article titled ‘Cruise Ship’ Norovirus Bug Can Spread by Air, Study Finds, saying that “notorious bugs that have infected scores of people and ruined countless cruise ship vacations — can spread through the air and infect people several feet away, according to new research.”
