Danes test for MRSA st398 before hospital entry

North Jutland in Denmark is introducing tests for MRSA st398 (cc398) for people in contact with live pigs before entering hospital.

Thousands will be tested including veterinarians, pig farmers and their families in an attempt to protect the hospitals and frail patents from the introduction and spread of disease.

Britain’s government veterinarians, after many years, still claim that British pigs do not have MRSA st398, so nothing is done to protect the hospitals or the patients.

Thousands of North Jutland should be tested for contagious bacteria before they are hospitalized.
