How Do You Get MRSA Infection?

How do you get MRSA infection?

MRSA can be spread through direct or indirect contact. If you touch an infected person and if there is a cut in your skin, you may get the infection.

Although it cannot be spread by air, droplets from a cough or a sneeze can lead to MRSA transmission.

People with these following conditions are more likely to have MRSA infection:

  • Live in health care facilities
  • Have weakened immune systems
  • Have chronic diseases like diabetes and cancers
  • Overuse of antibiotics

Key words: do you catch mrsa; do you get mrsa
