Be careful, Super Bacteria Threaten World

Super Bacteria Threaten World
Super Bacteria Threaten World - Be careful. Medical experts in Britain warned, there is a new bacteria that threaten human life. These bacteria are classified as super as the most powerful resistance to antibiotics though. Recently, this bacterium was found in a number of hospitals in England.
As reported by the BBC, medical experts also explained that the bacteria that can make an enzyme called NDM-1 were taken by NHS patients who previously flew out of the country such as India and Pakistan to perform cosmetic surgery.

Although currently only found about 50 cases in Britain, experts fear these bacteria will spread globally. For handling, it takes a watchful eye as well as new drugs.

A similar infection was found in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the Netherlands. No wonder then if the international investigators say that the NDM-1 could be a major threat to global health. At present, bacterial infection is spread from one patient to another hospital in the UK.
