Canada : Norovirus likely culprit in illness among Cuba vacationers

Aritcle via The Montreal Gazette :

" The 44 Canadians who flew home from Cuba while vomiting or suffering diarrhea last week all had "symptoms consistent with norovirus," Canadian officials say.

But the Public Health Agency of Canada says there have been no new cases since the flight they were on arrived in Ottawa Friday evening with 11 sick passengers. It was the fourth such flight to land in Ottawa or Toronto last week.

As well, 11 passengers who landed in Montreal Saturday felt nauseous, but none were actually vomiting and so public health officials weren't called in to determine whether if it were norovirus."
