OPINION (Express) – A terrifying and mysterious drug-resistant fungus has continued to spread across the world – sparking fears of a “serious global threat of an epidemic”. Candida Auris, the super-fungal infection behind the global panic, can infect anyone – but particularly affects people with compromised immune systems. The fungus is deadly – killing approximately 60 percent of patients that are infected. Scientists have branded
the infection “incurable” amid a panic that the C. Aurus will become an “urgent global threat”. Despite the rapid spread of the infection across the world, government health bodies and local hospitals with confirmed cases are staying silent on the fungus. The fungi spreads very easily and can take over a hospital room, leading some hospitals to keep an acknowledgment of an outbreak quiet.
