Antibiotic resistant superbug finally has reached the USA and recently found in Pennsylvania woman!!
For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could mean "the end of the road" for antibiotics.

The antibiotic-resistant strain was found last month in the urine of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. Defense Department researchers determined that she carried a strain of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic colistin, according to a study published Thursday in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology. The authors wrote that the discovery "heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria."

From the actual Department of Defense statement:



The patient with colistin-resistant E. coli was treated in an outpatient military treatment facility in Pennsylvania. Biologic samples were sent to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for initial testing and then to MRSN for genetic sequencing to identify the mcr-1 gene.

That's where I am as well, which is why it concerned me that they won't say anything more about location.
