Extracts from the "Instructions to Patients" leaflet issued by Erasmus MC – that’s the Rotterdam University Hospital.
We apparently don’t need or take these precautions in Britain.
Our world renowned government veterinarians tell us British livestock is MRSA free.
Yes that’s right, that’s the people that brought the world BSE (Mad Cow) and mishandled the 2001 Foot and Mouth Epidemic even delaying a General Election in the resulting chaos.
They claim British livestock is MRSA free.
Amongst many other disasters, they later let FMD escape from their premises at Pirbright infecting a number of farms: then denied responsibility for many months.
They tell us we do not have MRSA in our livestock.
Would you buy a used car from these people?
Wake up England!
