I caught norovirus simply collecting someone from the hospital. I used the hand creams provided and I always wash when I have been to the toilet and always wash before handling food or preparing food. The lady I collected from the hospital is 90 years old. She started being sick the night she returned home and I started the day after. I took every precaution because it part of my daily routine and normal practice to wash. So how did I get it???? More importantly.... why did I get it?
