Норовирус на Олимпиаде помните?

Причина подоспела и в ней прекрасно вообще все.

Norovirus outbreak at Pyeongchang 2018 confirmed to have been caused by toilet water tanks

An outbreak of the norovirus at last month's Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games was caused by portable toilets' water tanks, South Korea's public health authorities have confirmed.

The Dong-a Ilbo reports the authorities announced that the tanks were the reason behind the outbreak, which affected around 300 security personnel, after an epidemiological investigation of Horeb Youth Camp Center and other related facilities.

The genotype of the virus detected in the water tanks was said to have matched with those of patients.

Ironically, water used to wash hands or brush teeth prior to leaving a portable lavatory, in the interests of hygiene, was the culprit of the infection.

Around 570 portable lavatories had been set up during the Olympics, which took place from February 9 to 25.

According to the authorities, it is likely that the toilets' water tanks and septic tanks had not been properly separated.
