PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — An additional 17 cases of norovirus have been reported at the Pyeongchang Olympics, bringing the total confirmed cases to 194 since the beginning of the month.
The dozen and a half new cases were reported Monday. Of the new cases, eight are in Pyeongchang, and nine are in Gangneung, the city where the ice sports are taking place.
Authorities say 147 of the 194 have recovered and been released from quarantine.
Earlier in the Olympics, about 1,200 security workers were sequestered over norovirus fears, forcing the military to step in to help with security.
Norovirus is a common, infectious bug that causes unpleasant symptoms including diarrhea and vomiting but doesn't require medical treatment.
There are signs all over the Olympics reminding people to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.
