Winter plus schools adds up to the spread of illness in the community
In the winter, schools are well known to spread much more than knowledge. Although some have argued that schools also perform an essential role in strengthening a growing child’s immune system by facilitating the spread of bacteria into the community. Unfortunately modern times find us suffering the plague of dangerous drug resistant bacteria such as Clostridium difficile (CDI or C-DIFF) and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). These biohazardous and difficult to treat drug resistant bacteria usually come about through treatment in long term health care facilities but can follow the patient home when they are discharged from the facility, and from the home children may take the infection to school. The bacteria can even be transported in their clothing.
