(Worthy News)-- Another superbug outbreak is hitting the United States, this time linked to an intestinal bacteria spread by international travelers, the Washington Examiner reported.
Drug-resistant bacteria that reside in the intestines sickened 243 people in 32 states from May 2014 to February 2015, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Thursday.
The cause was travelers returning from overseas and introducing the illness in a series of outbreaks across the country.
The bacteria, called Shigellosis, can easily spread among children in childcare facilities, homeless people and gay and bisexual men, which has occurred in the outbreaks, CDC said. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/u.s.-faces-another-superbug-outbreak/article/2562470" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
