Catching a stomach illness is pretty common and never nice. From the likes of E. coli, to salmonella and norovirus, all are horrible and can last for some time. Salmonella can even be fatal if not treated correctly. The germs that cause these nasty illnesses can be spread with ease, be it by touching someone who’s already infected, or by touching a household object that someone with a stomach illness has already touched. Quickly, a whole household can become infected. This is why it’s so important to be aware of health and disease in your home, and to learn all about illness prevention, keeping the problem far from your door.
