Three Confirmed Cases of Norovirus among 40 Affected at IAAF World Championships

LONDON – Public Health England confirmed on Thursday three cases of Norovirus among 40 people that were believed to be affected by an outbreak that hit one of the official World Athletic Championships hotels.

The outbreak was detected in London’s Tower Hotel on Tuesday, but an investigation revealed that the hotel was not the source of the illness.

“PHE has been notified of a confirmed outbreak of norovirus among people associated with the World Athletics Championships,” said the PHE London deputy director for health protection, Deborah Turbitt.

“PHE has been working closely with the London 2017 organizers and venues to provide infection control advice to limit the spread of illness,” she added.

Sprinter Isaac Makwala of Botswana was one of the athletes hit by the gastroenteritis, as he was ruled out of the 400 meters finals and had to run on his own to secure a place in 200 meters semifinals.
