pellinore Posted March 21 #1 Share Posted March 21 (edited) A drug-resistant and potentially deadly fungus is spreading rapidly through US health facilities, according to a government study. Researchers from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the fungus, a type of yeast called Candida auris or C. auris, can cause severe illness in people with weakened immune systems. The number of people diagnosed, as well as the number who were found through screening to be carrying C. auris, has been rising at an alarming rate since the fungus was first reported in the US in 2016.
