Drug Resistant Staph Infection

Hospitals have always struggled against staph infections, but in recent years a drug resistant version of the bug has crept up.

It's called MRSA, or Mursa. Doctors say everyday anti-biotics can not kill it. According to a new survey, at least 30,000 patients in the U.S. carry the superbug at any time. It can be a nasty infection but the majority of people who acquire it recover from it without any difficulties.

Mursa is spread by touch, and once diagnosed, it can be treated with powerful anti-biotics. Doctors say the best way to stop the disease from spreading is by simply washing our hands.
