Targeting nurse and patient ‘supercontactors’ in health care facilities can help minimize spread of infectious diseases

New research presented at this week’s European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (Copenhagen, April 15-18) shows how interventions focused on so-called “supercontactors” in hospitals and other long term care facilities (LTCF) can optimize infection control and reduce the spread of infectious diseases. The study is by Dr. Quentin Leclerc and colleagues at Institut Pasteur and the Conservatoire National des Arts et M├ętiers (Paris, France). It has been published in the journal Scientific Reports.
