COVID Protocols Have had A Positive Impact On Lesser Infections
While the Covid pandemic has been a broadly negative experience across the board, there has been an upside. Due to the cleaning and sanitization practices associated with Covid, norovirus/stomach flu cases have reached a noteworthy low. As of August 22, 2022, only two cases of norovirus outbreaks that affected more than 3% of the passengers or crew were reported to the CDC, as noted by the Washington Post. These are levels significantly lower than in pre-pandemic years.
