    Candida Auris

    Untreatable fungal "superbug" spreads in Texas and D.C.



    This shit is communicable, and spreads by touch.

    But, don't worry: they're thinking they'll have a treatment in 2 or 3 years.

    Good GOD, I hope this isn't the next Covid.

    at some point, there will be a flesh eating highly transmissible virus at this rate. maybe then people will take it seriously...but I still doubt it.

    Candida is yeast. I guess the biggest issues with this particular strain of candida is the drug resistance.

    MRSA is stlll friggin' rampant in hospital environments. Fortunately, it finally starting to decline.
