The Fungus that Can Kill You—Candida Auris Spreading and Very Hard to Decontaminate

Candida Auris is about as scary a threat as one might imagine: a fungus that is multidrug resistant, hard to identify, and very had to clean/kill from hospital settings.

Be afraid, be very afraid because assuming hospitals are going to make patients aware of an outbreak is something only those born yesterday will find credible. State governments are suppressing information about it, a Low State that will surely lead to unnecessary deaths going forward.

From NYT: How a Chicago Woman Fell Victim to Candida Auris, a Drug-Resistant Fungus:

Nearly 600 cases of C. auris have been reported in the United States, the majority of them in New York, New Jersey and Illinois. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of people who contract the illness die within 90 days. But the true death rate is difficult to quantify because most patients have other medical conditions and their deaths may be attributed to other causes.

...on Tuesday, the C.D.C. confirmed that it has learned in the last month of the first known cases in the United States of so-called “pan-resistant” C. auris — a strain resistant to all major antifungals.

It often has been hard to gather details about the path of C. auris because hospitals and nursing homes have been unwilling to publicly disclose outbreaks or discuss cases, creating a culture of secrecy around the infection. States have kept confidential the locations of hospitals where outbreaks have occurred, citing patient confidentiality and a risk of unnecessarily scaring the public.

It’s not just fungus, there was a new deadly bacteria outbreak in Mexico that the CDC noted in January 2019 in Drug-Resistant Infections in Patients Who Had Weight-Loss Surgery in Mexico.
