The Centers for Disease Control Announced that a “Nightmare” Bacteria Which is Resistant to Antibiotic Exists in 27 States
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced recently that they discovered a bacteria that is resistant to all known antibiotics. This strain of bacteria, which is most commonly found in hospitals and nursing homes has invaded 27 states in the U.S. so far. Approximately half of the people infected with these so-called “superbugs” die as a restful of the uncontrollable infection. People with chronic illnesses and the elderly are at the highest risk of death from an infection caused by a superbug. Consequently, nursing homes and hospitals must be alert and quickly identify people infected by the resilient bacteria and take immediate steps to prevent the spread of the disease.
