Alert over ‘unbeatable’ superbug which could spread worldwide................
A superbug that is resistant to antibiotics and has ‘an alarming potential to spread’ has reached Britain.
Thirty-seven cases have already been reported, mainly among patients who have had surgery or other treatments in foreign countries.
Scientists have warned that the superbug - an enzyme called New Delhi-Metallo-1 - could spread worldwide because it is resistant to almost all antibiotics and nothing is being developed to combat it
Thank you for posting this, Tara. It is very serious stuff, and we all should be aware.
I have even heard that one can get MRSA from a paper cut. Anytime the skin is opened there is a chance of infection.
How will people die of infection most commonly? I’m thinking of kidney failure like the old days. And I suspect that there will be a lot of limb removals to keep the infection from spreading. There will lots of consequences like cancellation of sports programs. Please educate me.
Last time I checked, NO bug was chlorine bleach resistant. Good sanitation is the key to preventing the spread of this stuff.
