CDC sounds alarm on deadly, untreatable superbugs

İmage

Quote:A family of "nightmare" superbugs — untreatable and often deadly — is spreading through hospitals across the USA, and doctors fear that it may soon be too late to stop them, senior health officials said Tuesday.

"These are nightmare bacteria that present a triple threat," said Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "They're resistant to nearly all antibiotics. They have high mortality rates, killing half of people with serious infections. And they can spread their resistance to other bacteria."

So far, this particular class of superbug, called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, has been found only in hospitals or nursing homes, rather than in the community, Frieden said. But officials sounded the alarm partly because, if the bacteria's spread isn't contained soon, even common infections could become untreatable.

I question the general assumption that felines are inherently deficient in the area of grammar and sentence structure.

If they are trying to push immunization at all with these warnings.. it would not be very conducive to their cause..

Very counterproductive.. there isn't a shot or antibiotic in the world that is touching this one in particular.
