new strain of bacteria is closely related to the MRSA bacteria that
have spread beyond hospital borders in recent years and caused
outbreaks of severe skin and other infections. But the newly discovered
microbe is resistant to many more front-line antibiotics. Both strains
are technically known as MRSA USA300.
Man, I really am going to have to get three months of supplies stocked up now.
