SCI 220 Week 5 participation Visualizing Nutrition, Ch. 14 Health Codes
Hello Class,

 

On January 29th, 2014, the Royal Caribbean cruise ship "Explorer of the Sea" returned to Bayonne, New Jersey with nearly 700 passengers violently sick with what the CDC determined an outbreak of norovirus. This virus is responsible for 400,000 emergency room visits and contributes to about 56,000-71,000 hospitalizations each year. It is also responsible for 570-800 deaths, mostly among young children and the elderly.  Should more aggressive sanitation practices be implemented above washing your hands after using the bathroom? Why or why not? Have you ever witnessed a restaurant employee failing to wash his or her hands after using the restroom? How does that make you feel? Explain.
