MRSA drop stalls

25th April 2008

Latest figures from the Health Protection Agency show that MRSA rates have stopped falling in England and have begun to plateau.

Final quarterly figures for 2007 reveal that there were 1,087 MRSA bloodstream infections reported in England during October to December, which is a 0.6% increase on the previous quarter when there were 1,080 cases. The HPA said that it hoped the plateau was not “indicative of a levelling trend.� Meanwhile, Clostridium difficile infections fell by 8% in patients aged over 65.
