Were you looking for information about MRSA? MMRSA infection is a common misspelling of MRSA infection.
MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a type of bacterial infection typically transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or a contaminated surface. Until recently, this type of infection was most often acquired in hospitals or other healthcare facilities. However, over the past several decades, new strains of the infection have emerged in the community and are capable of causing severe infections in otherwise healthy individuals. This has escalated MRSA from a controllable condition to a serious public health concern.
