Stomach bug

Nauru students and children affected by stomach bug

This is after it was reported that students from Nauru College were vomiting after eating their school lunch packs on Wednesday last week.

Mrs. Peters said she inspected the caterer’s kitchen and found everything to be in order, with Nauru Public Health reporting a stomach bug was responsible.

The stomach bug has affected not only students in school but also many children around the island with RON Hospital’s Emergency Room flocked with parents bringing their children having symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea.

Warriors struck down by stomach bug

Preparing to try and bounce back from their fourth straight home defeat last weekend, and their eighth loss from 12 matches this season, four Warriors players missed Tuesday's training with a stomach bug.

Coach Stephen Kearney has confirmed those players were key playmaker Blake Green, veteran hooker Issac Luke, in-form utility player Karl Lawton and outside back Blake Ayshford.

"Yea, they've come down with a bout of gastro. We'll have to see how they pull up over the next little period," Kearney said.
