As more people are going on vacation, we will look at a pathogen that plagued cruise ships before the pandemic shut them all down- the dreaded norovirus. This is a very contagious virus that causes vomiting and diarrhea, and it can be spread through contaminated food or drink, through contact with infected surfaces, and through contact with other people.
Although these articles are a little older since the shutdown essentially eliminated travel, it is expected that the number of norovirus cases will start climbing again as people begin to travel more. Here are some links to articles to show you how difficult this virus can be to deal with:
