Public Health England warned people who suffer from the winter vomit to not go to the doctor.
Norovirus is highly contagious and the best way to avoid spreading it is to avoid leaving the house.
Instead, the body is urging people who suffer to treat their symptoms at home.
This is because the doctors will not be able to provide a cure – the only way to recover from the bad bug is to wait.
This means pushing the symptoms, including vomiting and diarrhea, alone.
Essex Live reports as Twitter Twitter of Public Health in England tweeted: "There is no cure for the winter vomit insect.Get yourself home until the symptoms pass away.
"Going to the GP puts others at risk of infection".
What are the symptoms of norovirus?
Norovirus is a gastric insect that causes vomiting and diarrhea, which usually passes in about two days, the main symptoms are:
- Feeling sick (nausea)
- Being sick (vomiting)
You could also have a high temperature of 38 ° C or higher, a headache or sore arms and legs.

How norovirus spreads
Norovirus can spread easily. You can capture norovirus from:
- Close contact with someone with norovirus
- or touching surfaces or objects where the virus is present, before touching your mouth.
- Alternatively you can also take the insect by eating food that has been prepared or managed by someone with norovirus.
