A total of 518 nasal swabs were cultured on Mannitol salt agar. From the significant growth 78(30.1%) carry pathogenic bacteria which cause food poisoning, 56 (21.6%) carry nasal Staphylococcus aureus, 3 (1.2%) carry Salmonella spp., 1 (0.4%) carry Shigella spp., 2(0.8%), carry Entamoeba histolytica and 10(6.25%) carry Giardia lamblia.
