A Nevada woman dies of a superbug resistant to every available antibiotic in the US
If it sometimes seems like the idea of antibiotic resistance, though unsettling, is more theoretical than real, please read on.

Public health officials from Nevada are reporting on a case of a woman who died in Reno in September from an incurable infection. Testing showed the superbug that had spread throughout her system could fend off 26 different antibiotics.

“It was tested against everything that’s available in the United States … and was not effective,” said Dr. Alexander Kallen, a medical officer in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s division of health care quality promotion.

Although this isn’t the first time someone in the US has been infected with pan-resistant bacteria, at this point, it is not common. It is, however, alarming.

You have to admit this is scary as hell

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

Was she from India?

I read a similar article about this the other day, and the article said that she was from India.

Bingo!

From OPs link:

The case involved a woman who had spent considerable time in India, where multi-drug-resistant bacteria are more common than they are in the US. She had broken her right femur — the big bone in the thigh — while in India a couple of years back. She later developed a bone infection in her femur and her hip and was hospitalized a number of times in India in the two years that followed. Her last admission to a hospital in India was in June of last year.

She was in her 70's. At that age, the common flu could of killer her.

India is probably the most
Filthy country on earth

Would not doubt the grand daddy of all virus and bacteria
Hang out there

People pooping in the streets
Dead animal an human corpses lying around
In open air
Garbage everywhere
beeches
