Word count: 671 + 1:07m video explaining what Norovirus is

This piece looks at how norovirus spreads through cruise ships, and using mathematical modelling to prove where, or who, the culprits are. Aligns with the Year 8 & 9 Biological Sciences curriculum, either looking at human cell function/immune systems or disease transmission and interactions between disease and the human body for (ACSSU149) (ACSSU150)  (ACSSU175) or (ACSSU176)
