Flesh-Eating Disease Explained


Link

Today in 1994, an explanation for a "deadly flesh-eating bug" outbreak in England was offered by British doctors. The disease was attributed to a cluster of unusually intense infections by the common Steptococcus bacterium. The people in Gloucestershire had been injured by a toxin that dissolved flesh and fat which came from the excessive bacteria's attack. Normally, Steptococcus is associated with simple and common sore throats and fever. Link
