Otago Daily Times - - General -

Whangarei Hos­pi­tal has put 11 pa­tients in iso­la­tion and closed its or­thopaedic ward to new ad­mis­sions to con­tain a prob­a­ble norovirus out­break.

Strict in­fec­tion con­trol mea­sures were in place to re­duce the risk for other pa­tients within the hos­pi­tal, clin­i­cal mi­cro­bi­ol­o­gist David Ham­mer said.

The 11 pa­tients have been iso­lated to pre­vent oth­ers be­ing in­fected. — NZN
