There are a bunch of things in this story that grabbed my attention. As Stefon says, this one has everything: the Navy, vomit, diarrhea, isolation, quarantine, a ship and Raleigh.
The Navy said people had started falling ill at HMS Raleigh in Torpoint about 10 days ago.
Those affected were placed in quarantine in an attempt to stem the spread of the contagious virus.
A Royal Navy spokesman said control measures included “intense cleaning and isolating those with symptoms”.
He added: “The virus started about 10 days ago. It peaked towards the end of last week at about 70 and numbers fell rapidly after that.”
HMS Raleigh provides training for the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the Royal Navy Reserve.
