There's been a tenfold increase in the number of norovirus outbreaks in pre-schools, kindergartens and daycares in Auckland, in the last month.

Auckland Regional Public Health Service says there were 29 outbreaks in November, with 21 of them at early learning centres.

The outbreak's been linked to a change in cleaning products, hundreds of people have fallen ill, and it still isn't under control.
