Study finds norovirus can be contained without closing wards


The bays do not always have doors on them, so as one of the modes of transmission of Norovirus is airborne, the virus can still spread within the ward and infect other patients. I think that they don't want to completely close the wards because of capacity issues, so they have decided that they now don't need to. I work at Derriford and know how the wards are set up there.
