Drug Resistant SuperBug from India

It is spreading because of medical tourism, by which patients travel abroad to seek cheaper treatment or access to medical services refused in their own countries.

As with all outsourcing you get what you pay for. You may save some money. Then again you may die from a superbug.

Enjoy the savings..

This short sighted approach now puts everyone at risk
. “The potential of NDM-1 to be a worldwide public health problem is great"

Oh good. We can add this to the list. Swine Flu, Bird Flu, West Nile Virus, MRSA and all the other (end of the world) viruses people have freaked out about over the years.
