I Wonder Why This is Not Publicised?

We assessed the ability of the residues of an alcohol-based hand gel (hand gel A) to support the survival of methcilin resistant Staphylococcus aureas (MRSA) and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii (ACCB).

MRSA and ACCB survived for 8 hours on hand gel A residue

Hand gel A is extensively used in UK hospitals and its residue left on high-touch surfaces may support the survival of bacteria that cause healthcare-acquired infections.

Taken from a study completed by UCH.
