MRSA IN LIESURE CENTRES

24 liesure centres in Scotland have been tested and MRSA 'colonies' were found to be endemic (May 15th). Tests are continuing but if eveidence from the USA is anything to go by they have had many seriuous ilnesses reported from sharing gym equipment. The answer to this in Japan, where SARS added to the resistance to use comunal gym equipment, was to coat all such rooms and equipment in a photocatalyst. This in the UK is known as 'lightclean' and renders any surface permanently free of bacteria.

Many writers, including myself have said 'BEWARE OF COMMUNITY MRSA". Again the government is not doing enough.

Reid is gone now. Women usually get things done. Let us see how Ms Hewitt tackles MRSA. Let us see announcements of substantial funding into the research of mRSA and development of an ANTIDOTE for MRSA.
