Norovirus Surprise

Norovirus Surprise. Almost sounds like a special form of ice cream dessert. Or at least, the surprise part might do. Yet why should Norovirus be a surprise in winter? Norovirus and Winter have long been linked. We know: • it’s one of the most infectious viruses •...

Friendship

We’re into the New Year with thoughts of happy beginnings and promises of fresh outlooks. One really good thing about having a global perspective is how many New Years can be had in 12 months by sharing with friends around the world. We have a while to settle into...

Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, England, is using some very clever new technology. In effect, after an MRSA super-bug infection has occurred, they can swab all those around and see who was transmitting that specific strain. That allows them to prevent the source...
