宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン 30: Norovirus
Last Wednesday my son came home from kindergarten and started to vomit. Then on Friday night my wife and I also got sick. I didn’t feel completely better until Tuesday. We think we probably caught norovirus. Norovirus is very common and especially now in Miyazaki and Japan many people have caught it.
The English pronunciation of “virus” is different from Japanese. In Japanese it’s pronounced “ウイルス”, and so has a /w/ sound, but in English it’s a /v/ sound.

And please read the information in the above picture on how to avoid it and please be careful-it is a terrible disease.
