Deadly germs, Lost cures: A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy
Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious.
Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe.
Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa ....
With the Chinese and Russia‚Äôs in cahoots, with a mining of Antarctica, I would not doubt that many of these ancient diseases are being thawed and weaponized . The other issue is that with a dense population, without clean water, lack of sanitation and a lack luster health system, many people will get the equivalent of the plague and millions could vanish before anyone could address the problem. I‚Äôm wondering also how often does political correctness address illnesses from communist countries or impoverished countries without saying., ‚Äú oh snap, we‚Äôve been wiped out by a plain load of soccer players from Venezuela ‚Äú.
