India Super bug

Postby ksl » Thu, 07 Apr 2011 2:44 pm

It appears that no antibiotic can fight the new super bug that some patients have brought back from India to the UK.

Though the defence of the body relies on natures best for prolonging ones life like the JEWS EAR for optimum defence against sore throats colds, and blood clotting.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auricularia_auricula-judae which is not unlike the famous Chicken essence that most Singaporean Chinese drink or add to soup, which I find quite awful in comparison.

Ok, sir. Gently put the beer bottle down and slowly move backwards three steps...

Well, you cannot stop these new infections from developing, what you can do is, to maintain a clean environment to live in by:

keeping moisture out of your living area,

getting your air con units thoroughly cleaned,

closing your bathroom door after a hot shower and open the bathroom ventilation windows open (worse case senario is to have a dehumidifier in there),

not drying your damp clothes indoors,

not having footwear that is worn outside to be in the house (use separate footwear indoors) us locals don't wear our shoes in for a good reason, nothing to do with tradition.

buying removable / wearable fabric covered furniture,

using semi / high gloss wooden furniture,

being careful when buying "antique" furniture (you may be introducing bad bacteria / molds to your home),

not opening your windows, If you live on the 6th floor or lower, try to open it for a shorter period each day (the wind will blow the mold from the trees into your home)

Putting your dirty clothes outside of your bedroom and in a clothed laundry basket. (ratten or wooden ones will become moldy)(damp clothes should be soaked or washed immediately)

If anyone has more questions, please feel to ask, will try my best to answer them.
Cheers

BTW, 3 trainees died in the KL police academy just last month, and guess what.... it has now spread to the Army training grounds in the same area by visiting trainee cops,

And just got news from my US principals, that my team and I need to probably be expats in the Japan Tsunami area, too many bodies there, and the place is severely "contaminated"
