Golden Staph- the super bug spreads, posing a major health risk.

Australia: Bugs have gotten really bugging, and drug resistant and added to this seem to bespreading like wild fire out of hospitals, becoming a deadly health menace, according to a warning issued by scientists. // Golden staph, which has been present in large hospitals for a good many years, is now posing a major health hazard as related strains are triggering dangerous blood poisoning and pneumonia, even in those people who have not had any contact with hospitals.

Lead researcher associate professor Graeme Nimmo, of the Queensland Health Pathology Service, said "the large distances between Australian cities have been no barrier to the rapid spread of the major epidemic strains".

Scientists have also forewarned that these rates are only going to increase, and it would certainly pay well to be alert and cautious.

The Australian Team, in charge of Antimicrobial Resistance, comprising of team of doctors form Australia, studied the rate of infections for nearly a year and compared the results with the previous surveys. Alarmingly, their studies did show almost a doubling of incidences of golden staph, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), from 2000 to 2004. The reason for this spurt can be attributed to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics as well as evolution of bacteria.

It was also found during the survey that community-associated golden staph strains were gradually getting resistant to antimicrobial medicines. Community-associated golden staph commonly shows up as severe boils and abscesses, and can become very serious causing blood poisoning and pneumonia.

Professor Nimmo issued a warning to General Practitioners about the potential infections that golden staph could cause and said, “Rapid diagnosis and appropriate early treatment will help to reduce the more severe manifestations of these infections. It's even possible that more staphylococcal strains will become methicillin resistant, s imilar to the spread of penicillin resistance in the latter half of the 20th century.
