Superbug infections climbing in
Canadian hospitals: report
  At least 2,300 people died in 2006 as a
result of an MRSA superbug and nearly
12,000 new patients were infected, as
rates of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria
continue to climb in Canadian hospitals,
according to figures released by the federal
  A national surveillance program using
data from 48 hospitals in nine provinces
found 5,787 new cases of infection by
methicillin-resistant       Staphylococcus
aureus bacteria in 2006, a 2.7-per-
cent increase over 2005 figures, which
translates into 8.04 cases per 1,000
hospital admissions.
   Dr. Andrew Simor, who co-chaired the
surveillance program, extrapolated those
figures to estimate the number of MRSA-
related deaths in Canadian hospitals.
  As well, he calculated there were 29,000
new patients carrying MRSA bacteria in
2006, of whom 11,700 had new infections.
