You do realize necrotizing fasciitis is the deadly kind right?

well alrighty then lets try wikipedia.

ST8:USA300 is a strain of community-associated MRSA that has emerged as a particularly antibiotic resistant epidemic that is responsible for rapidly progressive, fatal diseases including necrotizing pneumonia, severe sepsis and necrotizing fasciitis. The epidemiology of infections caused by MRSA is rapidly changing: in the past 10 years, infections caused by this organism have emerged in the community. The 2 MRSA clones in the United States most closely associated with community outbreaks, USA400 (MW2 strain, ST1 lineage) and USA300, often contain Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL) genes and, more frequently, have been associated with skin and soft tissue infections. Outbreaks of community-associated (CA)-MRSA infections have been reported in correctional facilities, among athletic teams, among military recruits, in newborn nurseries, and among active homosexual men. CA-MRSA infections now appear to be endemic in many urban regions and cause most MRSA infections

The fact is the "new" MRSA is considerably more deadly than other forms! This form has very few symptoms and does not show in the normal MRSA test and once it is in your lungs it's to late. I have had MRSA and was septic and was extremly sick but, I was told I didn't have to report it to anyone! I did tell my coworkers and stayed away from people as much as possible not only for them but, also for myself! I have heard people make comments that people only get it when they are not clean ect. And that just is not true. MRSA can be caught very easily but, people need to educate themselves and their children!! Seriously if your really sick or your child is sick go to the doctor and stay away from others until you are sure what is wrong and your not contagious!

Its on the WKYT news that someone died from it at the hospital and they are investigating other cases in Laurel County.
Maybe learn to comprehend what is written and you wont be so confused.
What a nut.

There are several sudden deaths in the area of healthy people that are under investigation due to MRSA pneumonia. This form of MRSA is a 300 genotype with a special enzyme that causes a sudden onset of necrotizing pneumonia. The health dept and the CDC are investigating all these deaths including the man mentioned about and the female from the detention center. Until pathology is completed and autopsy reports are public, we should not play the blame game! Death rates with treated are as high as 75% from this form of MRSA.

MY BROTHER DIED FROM THIS DISEASE. I HAVE THE AUTOPSY REPORT. HE WENT INTO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND WAS DIAGONSED WITH BRONCHITIS CAME BACK LESS THAN 12 HOURS LATER AND WAS DEAD. SO IF YOU HAVE SIGNS OF BROCHITIS YOU NEED TO HAVE A BLOOD TEST DONE. THIS WAS NOT DONE ON MY BROTHER AND NOW HE IS GONE. YOU REALLY NEED TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.
