Why do we want Anti-Bacterial Door finger guards?
MRSA : can be contracted by coming into contact with an object or surface that’s been touched by a person with MRSA.
MRSA is carried by about 2% of the population (or 2 in 100 people), although most of them aren’t infected.
MRSA is a type of bacteria that’s resistant to several widely used antibiotics.
This means infections with MRSA can be harder to treat than other bacterial infections.
The full name of MRSA is meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. You might have heard it called a “superbug”.
Noroviruses : anyone can get Norovirus, from the nursery to the nursing home, but those at highest risk are children under 4.
Outbreaks often occur in settings where there is close contact between many children.
The virus is also spread via contaminated surfaces.
Norovirus results in about 685 million cases of disease and 200,000 deaths globally a year.
Influenza: It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. If you touch something the virus is on, like a phone or doorknob, and then touch your nose or mouth, you could catch the flu.
The flu virus can live on a surface like a book or doorknob for a number of hours.
Anti-bacterial finger guards can help stop the spread of these type of infections.
