I rember some years ago the Labour government being attact by the normal right wing Tory lot about various bugs killing people in hostpital

What these people would not reconise is the Labour government introduced not the bugs but a way of recording them for th first time.
 Knowing about these bugs and being brave enough to aknowledge and record their presence in hostitals helped to fight against them.
Sadly the Tory pary supporters took advantage and used the figures for politacal advantage
Norivirus has like many other bugs been with us for a long time but like many other similar bugs they mutate and change. :(

Remember in the good old days how many people died of complications 8)
