How Do You Get MRSA Infection?

Q:
How do you get MRSA infection?

A:
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
