What Is Staphylococcus?

Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that causes staph infections  — which are as bad as they sound.

Some common symptoms of a staph infection include a painful red lump, sores, crusts, blisters, sore and red eyelids, and swollen and red skin.

Sounds painful, right? It is, and your chances of catching it are higher than you think.

Let us explain why.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 119,000 people suffered from bloodstream staph infections in the United States in 2017 and nearly 20,000 died.

Furthermore, over 30% of the world’s population carry staphylococcus aureus in their nose.

30% is a lot, right?

However, the good news is experts say that the percentage can be reduced significantly if we take the right precautions to protect ourselves and others from this deadly bacteria.

Protect Yourself and Others

Although staphylococcus is not as deadly as covid-19, it still poses a serious threat.

As we discussed earlier, the bacterium affects over 119,000 people every year in the United States and kills over 20,000 of them ⁠— but that’s not all.

Over 30% of the entire world’s population are at risk of catching a staph infection, which is why taking preventative measures to protect ourselves from this bacterium is a necessity.
