Bacteria

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is alerting clinicians about a drug resistant superbug that is spreading across the United States.

FOX's Colleen Cappon has more in today's edition of "Housecall For Health":

The CDC is warning health officials about a new, untreatable superbug in the U.S.. Fifteen new forms of the bacteria, known as CRE have been reported in less than a year. The superbug has developed a high resistance to antibiotics and lives in water, soil and the human gut. The majority of those infected with CRE received overnight medical treatment outside the U.S., but officials say healthcare providers need to take precautions to prevent further spread.
