Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

While I understand what you are trying to say regarding the “rumors” of staph infection at EU, I am afraid your choice of title “Staph rumors not serious” might mislead some people into thinking that MRSA is not a serious illness and that we do not need to worry about its presence in our community. True there is no need to panic, however it is a serious illness that is dangerous and can become life threatening if not diagnosed early and treated aggressively. People do need to take it seriously, adjust their personal hygiene habits accordingly, and they need to be vigilant to work as hard as they can to protect themselves at all times. True, there is no need to panic, but the EU community should think of this virus as a “serious” matter.
