The harmful superbug has been seen at UC Irvine Medical Center, which is the biggest hospital present in Orange County of California. Ten infants in California hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit have been diagnosed with this superbug since last six months. The superbug is known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA.
The MRSA superbug is difficult to diagnose and treat as they are resistant to antibiotics. In the span of 8 months starting from August 2016 to March 2017, the kids infected with this disease has been cured successfully.
The health officials have started determining the spread of the infection. They were trying to determine the cause of the disease. In the month of December 5 kids were infected by MRSA and recently in February and March, another 3 kids were tested positive for this infection.
The hospital claim that people should be informed on how to control and prevent yourself from getting the MRSA infection. The hospital staff should be alerted and informed to kill the potential MRSA superbug by using antiseptic soap and ointment. In the month of March, one more child was detected with MRSA infection.
The MRSA bacteria can spread via skin or nose and nearly 2 percent people carrying the superbug on their body parts. The disease can also spread when a non-infected person comes in contact with contaminated things like towels, skin contact with infected person, and share infected equipment. Hence, athletes, school going kids need to be aware of the spread of MRSA bacteria.
Only few treatment options are currently available to treat the disease because the MRSA bacteria is resistant to drugs and is difficult to trace. Daptomycin is the only drug that cures only one-third of patients.
The health care providers can be the potential carriers of the infection as this bacterium settles in wounds of an infected individual. One major step to stop the spread of superbug is taken by UC Irvine Medical Center which is the screening of infants before admitting them to a hospital.
