A total of 109 people have been confirmed infected by the norovirus outbreak at a tourist complex in the Almeria municipality of Mojacar.
An outbreak of norovirus in the Best Pueblo Indalo apartments located in the Almeria municipality of Mojacar has infected 109 people according to a report today, Friday, July 29, from the Territorial Delegation of Health and Families.
The first case was confirmed last Wednesday, July 27, and epidemiologists have since been carrying out an exhaustive tracking of newly affected patients.
“It is an explosive virus, but the symptoms are mild and disappear within 24 to 48 hours”, health sources confirmed to Diario de Almeria. They assured the publication that a significant number of patients had already recovered.
Those affected by this stomach virus have suffered vomiting, gastrointestinal ailments, diarrhoea, and general malaise these past few days. It is a sickness that is not caused by food poisoning but is most likely transmitted through direct contact with surfaces such as a railing or a doorknob.
