Housecall for Health: ‘Nightmare Bacteria’
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is on alert over the threat of a ‘nightmare bacteria’.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in this edition of “Housecall for Health”:
They’re calling it a ‘nightmare bacteria’, and an outbreak in Illinois is raising concern. The CDC says the superbug, centered on a hospital near Chicago, has infected 44 people in the past year. It lives in the intestines and is spread via fecal matter. Officials call the outbreak a huge cluster, and say it’s more deadly than other bacteria because it bears a rare enzyme that breaks down antibiotics.
