Nevada Woman Dies Of Antibiotic-Resistant Infection From Indian Hospital

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 January 2017  (5 days ago)
According to a report released Friday, a Nevada woman in her 70s died in September from a "superbug" infection that resisted all antibiotics. According to UPI, the case raises concern about the spread of such infections, which have become more common over past decades as germs have developed resistance to widely used antibiotics. In the case of the woman from Nevada, she'd recently returned from India, where she'd contracted an infection in a hospital following surgery on her hip. Report co-author Dr. Randall Todd is the director of epidemiology and public health preparedness for the Washoe County Health District, in Reno. He told the Reno Gazette-Journal that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "basically reported that there was nothing in our medicine cabinet to treat this lady."
