Abstract

A total of fifty samples were selected to study cross-infection among different occupational workers and public dealing places, of which forty-four samples were randomly selected from peoples engaged in different occupations, four samples from public urinals and two samples from the keyboards of public dealing places. It was reported that out of the fifty samples, thirty three samples were found positive for growth of mixed colonial morphology of microorganisms on nutrient agar and blood agar media. Nineteen samples showed positive growth out of 34 samples taken from intact hands, all the six samples showed positive growth taken from infected hands and three out of four samples showed positive growth from injured hands. Further, all the four samples taken from public urinals showed profuse growth with different colonial morphology and one sample showed characteristic growth from the two keyboards samples.
