Deadly germs, Lost cures: A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , ,

(Worthy News) - Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious.

Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe.

C. auris is so tenacious, in part, because it is impervious to major antifungal medications, making it a new example of one of the world’s most intractable health threats: the rise of drug-resistant infections.

For decades, public health experts have warned that the overuse of antibiotics was reducing the effectiveness of drugs that have lengthened life spans by curing bacterial infections once commonly fatal. But lately, there has been an explosion of resistant fungi as well, adding a new and frightening dimension to a phenomenon that is undermining a pillar of modern medicine.

  1. This disease has been around since 2009 that they know of... I heard them speak of GMO Foods sprayed with anti fungicides and it created or morph into a antibiotic resistant form of candida auris but it's been 10 years and now they're talkin to us about it??

  2. Nor for the pestilence that walk in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. PS 91:6
    There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.Ps91:10
    And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless your brea, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. Ex23:25
    But he was wounded for our transgression, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.Ish53:5.
    Only with thine eye shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.Ps91:8

  3. Golly gee, and these new mysterious bacteria are appearing at the same time that scientists are secretly working on meddling with the DNA of all kinds of organizations. I wonder if there's any link. I wonder if DNA meddling was ever a problem in man's past. I wonder if the Giants mentioned in Genesis were the products of DNA manipulation. Satan seems to drive people to do the same things over and over historically.
