MRSA outbreak concerns health chiefs

Fri, 24 Dec 2010

Health chiefs are concerned by a new strain of MRSA which has hit the Island.

Cases of MRSA USA 300 have been detected on the Island recently.

The so-called superbug is resistent to many anti-biotics, and can cause serious infections.

This particular strain mainly affects young, healthy and fit people.

It's transmitted in sporting facilities, gyms, swimming pools and spas.

The Public Health Directorate is keen to minimise the spread of the bug, and is arranging to meet with managers from sporting facilities across the Island
