On Sunday, a guest’s viral post on Twitter-like Weibo criticized Club Med Yabuli’s food hygiene practices, and claimed (link in Chinese) guests had fallen ill while on a package deal where the club provided all food, drinks and refreshments.

Club Med released a statement on Monday (link in Chinese) saying eight guests had been diagnosed with norovirus, the most common cause of gastroenteritis, and that 42 had reported symptoms.
