MRSA in Decline: England Edition

Don't know what I want
But I know how to get it
I wanna destroy passerby

-Sex Pistols "MRSA? in the UK"

MRSA rates have just reached their lowest levels in recorded history. Per a BBC report, there were 97 cases in the entire NHS in June, which represents the first time rates have been below 100. 25 hospitals had no MRSA cases in the month. C. difficile cases are also falling, so the decline is likely due to an overall emphasis on infection prevention including hand hygiene, which would impact both infections. Good news, overall.
