Well, here we have a lovely little friend. It's the Giant Microbes Norovirus. Now this little fiend causes a lot of problems. This is the one that can shut a hospital down if there is an outbreak and when you get this little beauty inside you, you are really going to know about it. You will run, and if you don't get to the toilet in time you are going to be in a big mess, at both ends if you get my drift. Norovirus is really nasty, and look how cute it looks.
You can get this via the eyes, mouth or nose and you get this from people or contaminated surfaces. The prevention is easy though, wash your hands and keep your surfaces clean. Once this has taken hold you are not going to very happy, you will become dehydrated and you will be ill for 1 to 3 days. You cannot treat this with antibiotics either, you just have to wait it out.
But, on plus side, look how cuddly he is! Add him now to your Giant Microbe Collection. This is great also as an education tool
