Mother and baby contract MRSA

A UK hospital has confirmed that a mother and her newborn baby have contracted MRSA.

Razvana Ali, 19, was diagnosed with the hospital superbug after her daughter was delivered by caesarean section at Bradford Royal Infirmary in February.

Mrs Ali suspected baby Marwha had contracted the same bug when she developed a rash on her body which began oozing.

Eventually it was confirmed Marwha had contracted the superbug.
