New Superbug...

Has been discovered in hospitals. Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae is a nasty and potentially fatal bacterial infection that is resistant to almost all antibiotics. There have been several deaths caused by it.

It can be carried by animals and jumps to humans.

Pretty scary stuff.

Good thing we still have talented scientists who continue to work towards solutions even when it seems hopeless.

Yeah I saw that Ka. It's good to see. I hope that they can come up with better antibiotics but also we need to stop abusing them.

The way I see it Tim, soon the scientist will be overwhelmed with new diseases arising faster than cure can be found. I think one of the main reason is as the icecaps melt new frozen diseases will be exposed and enter into a time frame not ready for the invasion.
