The new gene makes bugs highly drug resistant in a recent report from the Lancet. The report even went as far to suggest Veterinarians participate and track the ever increasing amount of bacteria that are immune to treatment.
Better hospital and personal hygiene are the basic defenses in trying to stop the spread of such bugs which tend to impact those with reduced immune systems more than others.
So far no cases have been reported in Eastern Ontario, but the H1N1 Flu last winter hit the Cornwall region harder than most areas nearby so more vigilance will be needed.
