(Worthy News) – Hundreds of cases of “nightmare bacteria” have been found in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.
New nationwide testing data found 221 instances last year of unusual, antibiotic-resistant genes that previously had been uncommon in the U.S.
The CDC released a report Tuesday that looked at the prevalence of such “nightmare bacteria,” which can include superbugs that can’t be killed by all or most antibiotics. The agency said the report, which details new data gathered from state and local health departments, underscores the need for greater identification of the bacteria.
