A drop in the number of cases of norovirus has been reported by Jersey's General Hospital.

The hospital announced that despite the drop, special measures for combating the winter vomiting bug would remain.

Two wards at the facility were closed to new admissions and a number of operations cancelled when the virus was discovered in December 2012.

More than 1.1 million cases of norovirus have been reported in the UK over the winter 2012-2013 season.

The bug causes sickness, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Jersey's General Hospital has asked islanders not to visit the hospital or their doctor if they have contracted norovirus.
