Another Superbug in 35 States Now - No medicines to combat it - Not the Same As The One from India

So, a Superbug was created where the mortality rate is 30% to 60%.  It has now spread to 35 states.

They say there are no medicines to combat this superbug.

Please be Aware this is NOT the Superbug that has come out of India from the Medical Travelers there, this is Another Superbug in the Hospitals here in the U.S.

Bacteria that are able to survive every modern antibiotic are cropping up in many U.S. hospitals and are spreading outside the USA, public health officials say.
The bugs, reported by hospitals in more than 35 states, typically strike the critically ill and are fatal in 30% to 60% of cases.
The bacteria are equipped with a gene that enables them to produce an enzyme that disables antibiotics. The enzyme is called Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenamase, or KPC. It disables carbapenam antibiotics, last-ditch treatments for infections that don't respond to other drugs.

Carbapenam-resistant germs are diagnosed mostly in hospital patients and are not spreading in the community. They're far more common nationwide than bacteria carrying a gene called NDM-1 that made headlines this week, Fishman says.

Those NDM-1 bacteria, named for the city of New Delhi, are rare in the USA and have been found mainly in people who obtain medical treatment in India, Arjun Srinivasan of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday.

We are approaching Winter in the Northern Hemisphere - I sincerely Hope, Everyone has Vitamin D and C besides Multi Vitamins and a Great Thing to have is Food Grade 35% Hydrogen Peroxide (adds oxygen to cells - cures almost everything - dilute to 3%) - Keep your body strong and Please Do NOT Get a Vaccine!
