MRSA is now largely under control in England , however a new report by the Health Protection Agency has revealed that there are now equally dangerous bacteria causing infections in the place of MRSA.
Epidemiologist Dr Susan Hopkins, the lead author of the report, told John Humphrys that dealing with these infection-causing bacteria is not as simple as just getting rid of them because "we need them" inside our bodies.
Dr Hopkins suggested that the best way to prevent infections from these bacteria is to "get better" at dealing with them in the early stages, adding that intervention is more effective than treatment.
