Cardiff and Vale advice over winter vomiting bug

Hospitals in south Wales have asked visitors with the winter vomiting bug to stay home.

People who have been ill within the last 48 hours are a risk to patients, said Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

"Be a responsible visitor is essentially what we are asking," said Dr Eleri Davies, the board's director of infection control.

Last month a norovirus outbreak closed hospital wards across south Wales.
