Our key supplier Addmaster have told us that Microorganisms make up the natural environment all around us. Many of these don’t cause us harm, however at times pathogens can be present which may cause illness. If an outbreak occurs, whether viral or bacterial in origin, there is significant potential for a large number of casualties. Norovirus, for example, is the biggest cause of infectious gastrointestinal illness in England, Scotland and Wales. There are currently 14,000 reported cases annually but it is thought to be responsible for at least three million illnesses a year. It can infect in very low doses and unless strict controls are introduced for prevention or containment it can spread swiftly in enclosed public areas, including cruise ships, hotels, restaurants or in community health and social care settings.
