Staph infections are more common in the US than anywhere else in the world, and are the second most common cause of infection after coronavirus.
It is the second major public health crisis in the country after the pandemic, and the second to hit hospitals.
As a result, hospitals have been forced to close their doors, with hospitals across the country reporting an increase in hospital admissions in the last two weeks.
The US Health and Human Services Department said in a statement on Tuesday that it was working with states and other federal agencies to improve access to healthcare, but added that hospitals and healthcare workers were at the top of the list of priority areas.
“While we know there are many, many more cases of staph in the United States than in any other nation, this outbreak is the largest in the history of this outbreak,” Dr. Paul Koester, deputy assistant secretary of health and human services, said in the statement.
“The health care community needs to focus on how we can keep staph infections in check while helping prevent further spread.”
In the US, hospitals are already reporting an uptick in cases, with more than 5,000 new infections in the first two weeks of September.
The virus, which is linked with the stomach, can be spread through a person coughing or sneezing.
The number of infections is far higher in hospitals than in general populations, and many have reported having a “very high” number of patients.
The new strain, known as MRSA, has also been linked to the coronaviruses coronavirostrictor, coronaviral-19 and pandemic-19.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning that the virus may have a greater impact in people who are in a weakened immune system.
Dr. Matthew Fauci, the director of the CDC’s coronaviregistry and immunization office, told reporters Tuesday that the MRSA strain has been detected in a “small percentage” of the population in several states, and that some of the patients have been hospitalized.
Infections from the MRBS strain of the virus, the most prevalent strain, have been found in the lungs, pancreas, kidneys, liver and spleen.
Staph infections can also cause infections in a number of other parts of the body.
They are most commonly caused by the common cold and have also been found to be linked to anaphylaxis, a condition in which the allergic reaction to a particular food or a drug causes an allergic reaction in the body’s tissues.
However, the new strain of MRSA is much more aggressive, and it is also spread more widely.
The CDC has said that the number of cases in the U.S. has more than tripled in the past two weeks, with at least 4,500 infections in six states, according to the agency.
