24 students at Haunetal boarding school fell ill with the Noro virus. A total of three patients are currently being treated in hospital.

The doctors at the rescue center in Bad Hersfeld in Hesse confirmed the suspicion of a Noro virus infection. A total of 24 schoolchildren at a boarding school in Haunetal, Hesse had to be hospitalized on Friday because of severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. The doctors initially cared for the young patients on an outpatient basis. Three students are still in the clinic and are receiving stabilizing electrolytes and fluids. According to the emergency rescue center, all children and adolescents are now on the mend. Dr. Dieter Pfaff has since confirmed the diagnosis of Noro virus infection to the news agency "dpa". The exact causes of the infection have not yet been clarified.

Noroviruses cause symptoms such as persistent vomiting and severe diarrhea. The infectious disease can be dangerous for older and immunocompromised patients. But children are also at risk, as a lot of fluid is withdrawn from the body due to persistent diarrhea. The lack of fluid balance is usually compensated for by infusions and the addition of electrolytes. Every year, around 300 million people worldwide develop the gastrointestinal infection. Otherwise healthy patients survive the disease after a good 2 to 3 days. (sb)
