SOME Muslims are undermining the battle to rid Britain’s hospitals of killer infections by refusing to wash their hands when visiting sick relatives.
Dispensers containing anti-bacterial gel have been placed outside wards at hospitals all over Britain in a bid to get rid of superbugs like MRSA and PVL.
It prevents people bringing in more infections. But some Muslims refuse to use the hand cleansers on religious grounds because they contain alcohol.
This is clearly reckless endangerment - endangering the lives of all the patients, Muslim and non-Muslim, in hospitals across Britain and should not be allowed. No scrub up, no admittance.
Alcohol wipes were used for years in clinics to clean the skin prior to an injection. I don't recall any objections to that. Some brands of deodourant contain alcohol.
MRSA is a terror.
Strangely every Muslim run convieience store I know has an off licence and sells alcohol.
