The CDC is ringing the alarm bells after a number of so-called superbugs have now been reported in at least 42 states.
The CDC is currently investigating an alarming outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae — or CRE — that has infected 44 people in Illinois over the last year. While that number may seem small, how the disease is clustered, and the fact that similar pockets are showing up throughout the country has the CDC and other medical professionals very worried.
Another troubling trend, one that could have dire consequences, is how CRE and a number of other superbugs, bacteria that have become resistant to even the strongest antibiotics, can share its resistance genes with other bacteria. If these bacteria start sharing that resistance with common bacteria like as Strep and E.coli, we could be in for a world of hurt.
