NSW Health on 28th April this year announced:
🤔 Watch for the Signs:
We should be watching for kids under 5yrs old with diarrhoea/nausea who then start to seem to have a yellow colouring to the skin called Jaundice.
This would require emergency care at hospital very urgently.

🤔 How common is it?
Not very! Per NSW Health on 28th April around 169 cases worldwide with none in Australia.
