MRSA - methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, also called superbug, is an intractable infection that is resistant to most antibiotics. Until the 1980s, it was rarely registered, in the 1980s you could only get infected in hospitals, and in the 1990s you could already get infected outside of hospitals.
Each year, about 11,000 Americans die from Staphylococcus aureus, and 5,500 die from MRSA. 3 times fewer people die from pneumococcus.
