Superbug Resistant to Every Antibiotic Available in US Kills Nevada Woman

A woman in Nevada died when a superbug she picked up in India proved resistant to all 26 antibiotics available in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The account of the unnamed woman’s death was made public on Friday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Public health officials said a 70-year-old resident of Washoe County arrived in the US in August last year after an extensive visit to India. She was admitted to an acute care hospital on August 18 and isolated with a resistant bacterial infection from a wound that had spread throughout her system.

“It was tested against everything that’s available in the United States… and was not effective,” Dr Alexander Kallen, a medical officer with the CDC who first reported the discovery of the superbug, told health news site Stat.

Despite being treated with 26 different antibiotics, the woman died in September.

“I think it’s concerning. We have relied for so long on just newer and newer antibiotics. But obviously the bugs can often [develop resistance] faster than we can make new ones,” Kallen added.

The CDC reported the Nevada woman had been hospitalized multiple times in India over a right femur fracture and subsequent infection of the right femur and hip.

The authors of report said hospitals need to ask incoming patients about foreign travel and also about whether they had recently been hospitalized elsewhere.

“The isolate was sent to the CDC for testing to determine the mechanism of antimicrobial resistance…[and] confirmed the presence of New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM),” said the CDC in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report released on Friday. NDM is an enzyme that makes bacteria resistant to many antibiotics.

The report stated that “isolates that are resistant to all antimicrobials are very uncommon,” and among superbug infections approximately 80 percent remained susceptible to one antibiotic.

The CDC considers antimicrobial resistance “one of the most serious health threats” currently facing the US.

    Recent trial carried out by The University of New South wales, Australia, found that all bacteria and viruses that had evolved to defeat antibiotic treatment were killed in every instance by the use of Manuka Honey, a product of New Zealand. This included Golden Staf & meningococcal diseases. Beware of buying Manuka Honey from non reliable sources as many fake honey’s are appearing in the market place. Suggest you buy direct from a established source in New Zealand.

    Manuka is a small tree native to New Zealand and Tasmania. It’s healing qualities are legendary.

  • From the article: “The report stated that “isolates that are resistant to all antimicrobials are very uncommon,” and among superbug infections approximately 80 percent remained susceptible to one antibiotic.”

    Eighty whole percent? Oh how unbearably NICE. But confabulating modern antibiotics with ancient antimicrobial agents is a huge mistake, for the difference is life-and-death REAL.

    Informed Opinion: Those poor overpaid and underinformed, pharma-PR-driven, profit-oriented medicos REALLY should have used (or at least promptly TRIED) a protocol that included both high-dose, high-potency (as in 1000+ PPM) Colloidal Silver (a powerful and GENUINE antimicrobial in its own right) orally AND on/within the exposed wound as well as IMMEDIATELY immersing that poor woman in a proper Bleach Bath (1/3 cup Clorox to 20 gallons of water, more/less) for roughly 20 minutes to half an hour. Such treatment is capable of wiping all traces of MRSA and Lyme Borellia (borellia burgdorfi) out of the bloodstream within scant minutes, just for two “Incurable” examples.

    Tip: Beware the “Herxheimer Reaction” when unleashing these powerful get-um-well agents on *your* disease’s pathogens. Look it up and consider your course of action well before turning-to as you must. (Just sayin’. You’ll learn…)

    Fact: I have no doubt that the sophisticated modern medics having effortlessly confused molecularly complex, biologically-based modern antibiotics with simple, mineral-based old-school *genuine* antimicrobials actually led to that poor woman’s needless death at Qualified Medical Hands. But the CDC really SHOULD have known better and drawn the proper distinction in their weaselly little report. (Alas, it does not care to. Never has, to date – go figger.)

    For the record, now: Yes, Yours Truly has actually done such things for their own self in the course of overcoming a truly horrid complex of “incurable” infections administered at the hands of a criminal Intelligence Agency operation n 1960 at age 8, all mainstream medical options but for hospice care having been exhausted by the spring of 2009 and the rest of my family either dead or essentially destroyed. Moreover, YT’s recovery has amazed others in this town. Those who have asked and been told the truth of such icky-squicky things have likewise gone on to clear up their own skin conditions and deeper infections that had plagued their own lives for years on end.

    So now YT has friends! Life is GOOD. :smile:

    Fact: Old School Medicine still works, Beloved Reader – same as it ever was. And the Rockefellers STILL dominate the US medical school curricula – at a huge profit to their clan, to the utter detriment of the starry-eyed entry-level wannabee-doctors (who surely WOULD have become GOOD doctors but for the corporate-driven DIS-EDUCATION the “best” medical colleges reliably provide) and little but trouble, pain, expense, pile upon pile of pretty, comforting Noble Medical Lies and consequent grief for the Rest of Us who have been fool enough to believe and trust them.

    But NONE of this suffering and death need continue, Beloveds, inthis Internet Age. Help ISA available. So wise UP, Gentle Reader! PLEASE acquaint your OWN self with what these days is called, “Effective Medicine” – medicine that addresses the ROOT CAUSE of infectious disease and wipes it out COLD. See

    for a tiny high-potency taste of the REAL DEAL. “Anti-Semitic” forget. Genuine Semites are olive-skinned, brown-eyed and dark-haired. (Jesus of Nazereth was a Semite of the bloodline of King David, for example. Bibi Netanyahu, otoh, evidently is NOT. BIG differences between the two!) BUT:

    Our health’s modern enemies-in-practice are largely blonde, blue-eyed yeshivniks with an Entitlement Problem and all too *anti-semantic* with their English language’s subtle daily misuse for a scholar with eyes and ears to fail to notice, which is why all the trouble and confusion imvh&observant,experienced_o. (YT is half-Indigenous, half-Jewish, half-smart at minimum and all-American, just for the record.)

    Because you, too, really CAN diagnose yourself accurately once you know how to raise the ol’ Gumption! And because COMPLIANT FOOLS DIE. (Ask your doctor and then just read the Body Language, HM.) And that is all. 0{:-)o[
