Mrsa Spider Bites the FleshEating Bacte
In this short novel, the lives of three persons acutely ill from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections are depicted. This book is also a narrative about a potential public health crisis as the number of MRSA infections is acquiring epidemic proportions. These infections sometimes evolve to become 'flesh-eating.' The current epidemic is happening in a silent and dangerous manner in the form of 'spider bites.' Important measures to curb this epidemic of community-associated MRSA infections probably rely in increased public awareness and simple hygiene measures such as hand washing and the use of soap.
