Stomach Bug in JHB (Jan/Feb 13)

I have been experiencing tummy problems in the last 2 weeks, including upset stomach and diarrhoea. I know of two others who have complained of this in recent days. Is it possible that there is a bug going around in JHB?

I am situated in Paarl, Western Cape and I am unaware of a spesific bug in Johannesburg. I suggest that you consult your GP for a stool analysis to find the cause for your diarrhoea. Prolonged diarrhoea has to be investigated.
