I Live in tropical country of Indonesia and yet MRSA case are low but still found in few area of the archipelago.

And as Indonesian are the largest Country archipelago in the world, it also difficult for local goverment to reach those infected area.

Agree with you that maintain basic hygiene is the best way to minimize the risk.

I’ll be sure to keep my family informed about this issue.

Thanks for the Information 🙂
