Infection (2 Biomarkers)

Norovirus is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK thought to infect close to one million people every year. Although often referred to as the ‘winter vomiting bug’ because it's more common in winter, it is possible to catch it at any time of the year.

Norovirus is highly infectious and causes a very unpleasant but generally short-lived infection that usually clears up by itself after a few days. Symptoms include diarrhoea and vomiting, which is often sudden. Some people may also have a raised temperature, headaches and aching limbs.

The norovirus can spread very easily and is transmitted through having close contact with someone with norovirus, touching objects or surfaces that have the virus on them, then touching your mouth as well as eating food that's been prepared or handled by someone with norovirus. Washing your hands frequently with soap and water is the best way to stop the virus spreading.

This stool test helps to confirm a norovirus infection.
