Writing Blas – A highly dangerous fungus capable of killing a person in 90 days is rapidly spreading around the world, warning the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States (CDC for its initials in English).
The first infection with candida auris "fungus" was discovered in South Korea in 2009. Since then there have been cases all over the planet.
The CDC claims that this is a serious threat to global health for three reasons:
First, that "Candida auris" resistant to drugs has a very high mortality rate, between 30 and 60 percent.
Second, it is difficult to identify with standard laboratory methods and can be mistakenly identified in laboratories without specific technology.
Wrong diagnosis can lead to poor management and fatal outcome.
Finally, outbreaks in health environments, so rapid identification is essential to prevent rapid spread.
In addition, the fungus can survive for up to a month in a non-biological environment and joint cleaning are not effective enough.
The main symptoms are fever, pain throughout the body, fatigue and discomfort.
In addition there are identified risk factors such as immunosuppression, diabetes, chronic kidney cancer, HIV infection, low birth weight and late-onset nepsatal blood.
