🚨🇯🇵TOXIC SHOCK SYNDROME SURGE IN JAPAN

Japan faces a rapid increase in Toxic Shock Syndrome cases, with 801 instances of hemolytic streptococcus reported since January—nearly triple last year’s count.

Health experts warn that even minor skin injuries can introduce the bacteria, leading to severe complications like tissue necrosis or death.

The uptick is linked to relaxed pandemic measures, causing a rise in related infections like pharyngitis.
