But is the hotel where they are all staying the source?
Around 20 Danish tourists, as well as others from Sweden and Norway staying at the Hotel Baikal in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria have come down with the notorious rotavirus. Danish travel company Spies says it has seen similar cases this year.
“We are currently registering about 20 sick Spies guests,” the agency tells Ekstra Bladet. “We have had some cases during June and July, but there has recently been a marked increase.”
Around 225 guests from Scandinavia are staying at the hotel, and Swedish and Norwegian guests have also been affected.
Rotavirus is highly contagious, causing gastroenteritis – inflammation of the stomach and intestines. Symptoms include watery diarrhoea and vomiting as well as fever. Severe dehydration can result, with death being a possibility in severe cases.
Both Spies and local authorities are insisting there is no evidence that the hotel itself, which has around 600 guests, is the source of the virus. “Since the virus comes from outside, neither Spies nor the hotel is responsible,” a spokesman said.
