New Weapon in War on Superbugs

New Weapon in War on Superbugs
Excerpt from Article:
Researchers from Université de Saint-Boniface have declared a South African commercial cleaning product they've tested exhaustively can be a highly effective weapon in fighting superbug infections in hospitals.
Infections such as clostridium difficile, MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and E. coli can be fatal when they get loose among the sick and weak.
"This one actually eliminates the spores, in a weak concentration, in 90 seconds," USB spokeswoman Monique Lacoste said Friday. "It's a commercial product we were asked to examine. It's to scrub down the rooms."

This is an important finding in cleaner game for hospitals. Most "super" bacteria can be resistant to many types of disinfectants and having this as a weapon would be an asset. Great works being done at St.B Hospital!
