Glasgow, July 19 (IBNS) The NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde on Saturday said an additional five security workforce have reported unable to work due to gastrointestinal symptoms bringing the total number of reported cases to 53.

"All five have been told to remain at home until they have been clear of symptoms for 48 hours," the  NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde  website said.

"The Public Health Protection Unit of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Health Protection Scotland and environmental health officers of Glasgow City Council are working together with Games organisers and contractors to investigate, monitor and contain this incident. Good levels of communication are being delivered to village residents and workforce and every precaution is being taken with everyone being very vigilant," it said.

Gillian Penrice, Consultant in Public Health Medicine for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “As we would expect, the number of new cases is continuing to decline."

“Staff who have been symptom free for 48 hours are starting to return to work and those who are still experiencing mild symptoms are not giving any cause for concern as a result of the virus,"  Penrice said.

“Norovirus is the most common stomach bug in the UK and is usually mild and generally lasts for 24 hours,"  Penrice said.

“Village residents and workforce have been informed and issued with health information and we continue to monitor the situation," the doctor said.

The CWG will be held from July 23 to Aug 3.
