VRE!!??

I think by now everbody has know what happen lately in SGH after the media release yesterday. Its about a bacteria call VRE. What exactly is VRE and how does it spread? Since me missy, better let you guys know so when you people see me don't run away from me ah.. Image hosted by Photobucket.com

VRE: Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci,
Enterococci is a bacteria found in stomach and bowels, vagina, mouth and throat etc..
Vancomycin is an antibiotic that is used to treat Enterococci.

Spread: Do not spread by respiratory droplets or airborne route. From person to person by
direct contact with an infected person usually by hands.

*But if you are healthy chances of getting it is low even though you have contact with someone
who have VRE.
