And ways to stop it

MRSA

MRSA stands for Meticillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. It’s all in the title. This dangerous bacterium is the cause of the majority of post-operation infections and deaths, and is all the more imposing because it is resistant to most forms of Penicillin. It spreads quickly and efficiently, transferring by a single touch. Even if you don’t touch an infected individual, you can still catch it by making contact with objects already contaminated by said individual.

Where does it live?

  • Dirty clothing
  • Soiled bedsheets
  • Razors
  • Towels
  • Doorknobs
  • Gym equipment
