  • Real risks now include bacteria and viruses that spread very quickly and can be disabling or deadly within hours.
  • Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (superbugs) such as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) Spread very easily, are very difficult to treat and can be deadly.
  • New pathogens (germs), such as new cases of flu are being identified every day and they move around the globe quickly increasing the risk of transmission.
