Walsall Manor Hospital ward closed to visitors over bug

One ward remains closed to visitors at a West Midlands hospital after an outbreak of the norovirus bug.

Walsall Manor Hospital said it reopened nearly all of its wards to visitors on Wednesday.

But the visiting restriction remains on ward 4, as this still has some patients affected with the virus.

The hospital urged visitors to stay away for at least 48 hours if they are, or have been, recently affected by vomiting and diarrhoea.

It added if members of the public had been with a friend or family member who had shown symptoms either of vomiting or diarrhoea, they should not visit the hospital.
