Tom Brady was up early, making his weekly appearance on WEEI with "SportsCenter" on in the background, when Patriots highlights came on the program. His preschool-aged son Jack, who has been in the postgame locker room a couple of times this season wearing a number 12 jersey, saw the Pats, and likely his famous father, come on the screen and said excitedly, "Daddy, that's you!"

There has been some difficulty in acquiring P3 anti-viral masks. We have secured a supply on allocation. We can also recommend a supplier of products tested and proven disinfectant cleaners that kill the flu virus. This includes wipes, sprays, disinfectant cleaner and hand sanitisers. These product are from an accredited and proven supplier to the NHS.

Vomiting bug to get worse

Fears that infection will spread as schools and offices reopen
Over 100 hospital wards closed

About this article
This article appeared in the Observer on Sunday January 06 2008 on p2 of the UK news section. It was last updated at 23:43 on January 05 2008.

Infections from the debilitating norovirus stomach bug will peak this week as millions return to work after the holidays and spread the germs, the government has warned. People are advised to protect themselves by washing their hands thoroughly at all times.

The virus, which was responsible for closing more than 100 hospital wards last week, can also be guarded against by disinfecting bathrooms and washing cups and dishes properly.

Health Minister Ivan Lewis said: "We want to get the message across to everyone that washing your hands properly with soap and warm water, or even an alcohol gel, can help reduce the spread of infections and help protect you, your family and those around you.'

NHS workers are also urged to be vigilant and to remember the guidelines of the 'cleanyourhands campaign'.

With noroviruses, toilets are particularly important as many of the germs are passed on via toilet seats that are not cleaned properly. Some studies suggest that as many as 50 per cent of women and 75 per cent of men fail to wash their hands after visiting the bathroom.

Disinfecting surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens is also important, because the virus can become airborne when someone is sick. Bleach-based cleaning agents should be used, and any food which has been handled by a person with the virus should be thrown out.

Doctors estimate that more than 100,000 people a week are catching the infection - and the rate may peak this week as the virus takes the opportunity to spread in the workplace and classrooms. Reported cases of the illness from early December are at a five-year-high, but the real figure is likely to be much greater as most sufferers do not seek medical attention. People struck down have been urged by GPs not to go back to work until the symptoms have fully disappeared.

Dr Darren Simpson, a GP in Bradford, said his practice had seen a large number of people with norovirus in recent weeks. 'Very few people follow the advice of staying away from work, often due to unsympathetic bosses. But it's the worst time of year to catch it as a lot of places are understaffed due to leave and bank holidays so there is increased pressure to attend work if you can.'

Noroviruses are members of the Caliciviridae family of viruses which cause gastroenteritis, or an inflammation of the stomach and the large intestine. The infection is not normally dangerous but the very young and very old are most at risk of complications from dehydration.

The bug can be spread by contact with an infected person, through contaminated food or water, or by contact with contaminated surfaces or objects. But it is also able to survive on practically any surface, including glassware, sinks, doorknobs and railings. A person who puts a hand to their mouth after touching a contaminated surface can be infected.

Doctors have advised patients that as soon as symptoms appear they become contagious to others, and that they remain infectious for at least three days, and often longer, after they recover.

Incidences of this relatively new strain of MRSA are known to be rising.
A new pattern of disease due to Panton - Valentine Leukocidin (PVL) - positive strains of Staphylococcus aureus is emerging in the UK and world-wide. PVL is a toxin, which destroys white blood cells and is carried by <2% of clinical isolates of S. aureus. PVL can be detected in both meticillin sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) and meticillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA). To date the majority of isolates causing infection in the UK have been MSSA. Community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) are more likely to produce PVL than hospital-associated MRSA. PVL-positive S. aureus are normally associated with necrotising pyogenic cutaneous infections and occasionally with cellulitis or tissue necrosis. However, they can cause other severe invasive infections such as septic arthritis, bacteraemia, purpura fulminans or community-acquired necrotising pneumonia.
PVL-producing strains of MRSA have been seen in the UK before - however, the small numbers of cases reported have usually been in the community rather than a hospital setting. This outbreak is the first time transmission and deaths due to this strain are known to have occurred in a healthcare setting in England and Wales.

PVL-producing strains are more commonly contracted in the community and generally affect previously healthy young children and young adults - this contrasts with the so called 'hospital-associated MRSA' strains which do not produce PVL and are more commonly associated with causing wound infections and blood-poisoning in more elderly hospitalised patients.

Dr Angela Kearns, an MRSA expert with the Health Protection Agency, said: "When people contract PVL-producing strains of MRSA, they usually experience a skin infection such as a boil or abscess. Most infections can be treated successfully with everyday antibiotics but occasionally a more severe infection may occur."

"The Health Protection Agency is advising the hospital on outbreak control measures, and will continue to monitor MRSA infection nationally."
