Michael Jackson struck down by MRSA-type infection

jueves, 12 de febrero de 2009 |

Concern for Michael Jackson's health has fuelled fear that the star may have contracted an MRSA-type infection that is resistant to conventional antibiotics and might leave him needing reconstructive surgery.

The 50-year-old has reportedly been hooked up to an IV drip at a Beverly Hills clinic to receive antibiotics to cure the "staph" infection which may turn into a flesh-eating disorder.

A source revealed to The Sun that the virus has already spread to his face and body and doctors are trying all they can to beat the infection.

Jackson was photographed visiting the clinic for alleged treatment wearing a surgical mask, cap and sunglasses.

The disease is thought to be contracted through cuts and is some-what common to contract throughout health care facilities, much like MRSA.

If the 'staph' infection develops it has the potential to kill off body tissue, but if caught early and treated patients are expected to make a full recovery.

Michael Jackson's spokesman denied the allegation however, saying the pop singer is healthy and negotiating an entertainment deal currently with a television company.
