Palestinian Information Centre  -  20 June 2012

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian health ministry categorically denied the spread of epidemics resistant to antibiotics in the Gaza Strip.

Director of the preventive medicine department Magdi Duheir stated the rumors about the spread of antibiotics-resistant diseases caused by bacteria MRSA and Staphylococcus Aureus are untrue.

Duheir told Quds Press that no hospital in Gaza reported such infections or deaths related to these bacteria and there was no single medical case kept in quarantine.

The health official affirmed that the figures rumored by Israeli sources about people who were allegedly infected with or died of such bacteria are completely unfounded and do not reflect the health reality in Gaza, adding that if any epidemic broke out, the health ministry would hasten to report it to the  world health organization.
