Norovirus @ Olympics Linked to Contaminated Water

posted by Kat - 

The norovirus outbreak that has sickened 199 staff and volunteers at the  Pyeongchang Olympics appears to be linked to contaminated water used to  prepare food. The Korean Center for Disease Control and Prevention  (KCDC) confirmed on Tuesday that norovirus has been found in 94 people  linked to the Horeb Odaesan Youth Training Center--including those who  ate food from the center but don’t live there. Analysis of the center’s  water discovered fecal coliform bacteria. While the illness has spread  from the Pyeongchang area to Gangneung, the coastal city hosting several  indoor events at the Games, no athletes are known to have been  infected.
