– Rampancy of Norovirus –

As you can see, norovirus is going on a rampage. In the article, it seems that a source of infection is “an unconventional virus” because of inexplicable nature. As I have explained about it so far, it is due to a rapid decline in human immunity. Therefore, it is far from easily passing, but rather there is a possibility that it will spread throughout the world along with bird flu and swine flu.
Since most of earthling, who failed to receive the Light showered on January 1, have reduced functioning of endocrine gland as well as immunity, so-called incurable diseases will increase to an inconsiderable degree. It is possible that mental illnesses including depression and dementia will rapidly increase. This outcome was anticipated after the perihelion passage of Comet ISON in the middle of December last year.

Norovirus – Outbreak of New Type? Infection Spreads

Norovirus is going on a rampage all over the country. Although the outbreak is usually supposed to pass around the yearend, the news of large-scale infection with the virus has been heard this season even after the start of a new year. It is presumably due to the spread of an unconventional virus.

Norovirus is the virus which grows in the human bowel. It is such a highly infectious virus that it was called “stomach flu” and accompanies a symptom of severe diarrhea.

Infection with norovirus is through entering into the mouth from a hand which touches the stools of an infected person. Alcohol is ineffective in destroying the virus and hypochlorous acid contained in bleach is used to sterilize it. It is said that recently anti-bacterial spray containing diluted hypochlorous acid is available.

Norovirus spreads to hundreds of people through school lunch or spreads in facilities for the elderly. It is necessary to take organizational measures mainly in places where food service is provided.

Norovirus was detected at a town Norwalk, America, in 1968. At that time, it was named after the place and called Norwalk virus. Subsequently, the international society shortened the name and named as norovirus. The name has become vague in the meaning. (Yoshihiko Tamura)
