INTRODUCTION — Prevention and control of methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is among the most important challenges of infection prevention. About 100,000 invasive MRSA infections occur annually, and the associated number of death is estimated to be 19,000 . Factors in transmission include colonization, impaired host defenses, and contact with skin or contaminated fomites [2,3]. Further study of S. aureus pathogenesis is important for prevention optimization.

The only way to prevent a virus infection in the first place is through vaccination (i.e., smallpox).
It can also be safely taken by pregnant women and nursing mothers.”2 CDC research also shows that “chloroquine can affect virus infection in many ways, and the antiviral effect depends in part on the extent to which the virus utilizes endosomes for entry.
Nationwide, a new infection occurs every nine and a half minutes.
Therefore, even if you use condoms, sexual foreplay (skin-to-skin body contact) and oral sex are still a high risk for contracting syphilis – your sexual partner may be unaware of their infection if they haven’t been tested.
