MRSA st398 hits Dutch nursing home

There is not much argument any more, about the dangers of MRSA st398 (cc398) to humans or its presence in pig herds.

Apart from in Britain where corrupt government veterinarians continue to cover-up MRSA st398 in pigs and provide inadequate information on protection to the hospitals.

Interestingly, a complicated row broke out yesterday about secrecy over health threats. The British government admitted keeping information on pandemic threats secret, despite transparency obligations. The excuse seems to be to prevent panics.

Critics suggest that it is to protect crooked backs. 

The Dutch don’t panic, the Germans don’t panic, the Americans don’t panic, all admitting MRSA st398 in their pig herds.

Does anyone seriously suggest the British would panic?

The public might decide the culprits need dragging before the Courts. That might cause a panic.
