is this the new terrorist biological weapon ?

the new super bacterie found in places like hospitals,gyms and schools is almost uncureable !
hypervirulent ca-mrsa ( "community acquired methiciline resistente stafilokok aureus" is the offical name.)

there are only 2 antibiotica steps left that stop the bacterie for the moment but the moment the super bacterie becomes resistent ..this will have
kinda same effect as the black plague was once !!

the superbacterie passes from person to person by skincontact and...bizar even to very healthy people too !



this super bug could be a creation out of a "lab" somewhere among islam terrorists and spread out worldwide by them !

among the places the super bacterie is detected are USA,australia,belgium...

Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria has been a problem in hospitals for a while. It's getting used to vancomycin and methicillin on it's own. Do a google for MRSA or VRSA.

the panic is arising because if the super bug becomes resitent then there
is no cure !
contamination by skincontact now is happening in other places than hospitals !
also to completly healthy people and this is the frightening stuff to the researchers because when contamination can be done in a super market,railwaystation,tube,swimmingpool,dancing,festival...!!

QUOTE: BBC NEWS

Doctors are very worried about what the future holds for MRSA.

The number of reports of MRSA infections rises year by year - and the latest evidence suggests that deaths due to MRSA are increasing at a similar rate.

Already, the spectre of a bug resistant to all antibiotics is approaching.

VRSA, or vancomycin resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, has acquired resistance to a drug considered the "last line of defence" when all other antibiotics have failed.

The UK has already seen several cases of GISA, or glycopeptide intermediate Staphylococcus aureus, a kind of "halfway house" between MRSA and VRSA, which has developed a resistance to antibiotics of the vancomycin family.

Although new antibiotics are being developed all the time, pessimistic experts believe it is only a matter of time at current rates until virtually every weapon in the pharmaceutical arsenal is nullified.

Nihilists suggest that there could come a point at which bacteria retake the upper hand, and doctors, as in previous centuries, have no answer to some bacterial infections.

It should be noted, they say, that humans have only had the upper hand over bacteria for a handful of decades - we have no right to expect that situation to last forever.

Exactly, this has been going on for years. We are getting better and better at microbiology, and I don't see Staph infection overtaking us, though anything is possible.

I'm trying to understand why you think terrorists would have anything to do with it. Are they ahead of us in biological warfare? Do you have a reason to suspect that S. Aureus didn't evolve on it's own or are you suggesting terrorists just because its bad?

Good Fact Sheet

just explain to me why the mad cows disease and bird pest could start SAME MOMENT and at distant unconnected places !

try out...if it works they use other & stronger stuff !

can you arrest everybody with 1 or 2 glass jars with a liquid in the car's boot ???

MRSA has become a huge problem in the UK. It first appeared in UK hospitals during the late 1950s. The current upsurge in cases appears to be partially caused by financial cuts by hospital management and lack of basic medical practices such as hand washing etc.

In the UK there is no need for a terrorist to use MRSA as a BW agent, the medical profession are doing the job for them!

The world of micro-biology is frightening indeed, but has little do with terrorists. Viruses mutate and evolve at fast rates, and are more adaptable that any other life form on earth. Its what they do. Bacteria can live in volcanic vents and eat sulphur as a fuel source, no telling what they are capable of.
If you wish to blame anyone, its the people that dont take all their antibiotics, and allow the virus / bacteria to develop immunity instead of destroying them. Bacteria have traveled to the moon and back, and lived.
Its people that dont tkae their full dosage of anti biotics, and let the virus and bacteria build an immunity that causes the troubles. Lazy terrorists?
