According to the CDC, in 2017, over 120,000 invasive infections and nearly 20,000 related deaths occur every year because of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA. The bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus commonly live in people's respiratory systems and on their skin. Typically, they're harmless, but sometimes the bacteria cause infections and illness. In the case of MRSA, the problem is that the bacteria have become resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics. Washing your hands frequently and thoroughly may help prevent this and many other types of illnesses and infections.
