People with stomach bugs told to avoid hospital visits

People with sickness and diarrhoea are asked to avoid visiting hospitals in south west Wales in a bid to stop the spread of stomach bugs.

Hospitals across the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg area have seen an increase in the number of cases.

The health board said people who have experienced symptoms within 48 hours should not visit wards.

It said it understood the importance of visiting family but the health and wellbeing of patients came first.
