Outbreaks of the Deadly Super Fungus Candida Auris are Being Covered Up

Outbreaks of the Deadly Super Fungus Candida Auris are Being Covered Up.

While the whole World has been in panic over the so called reemergence of Measles a new deadly mysterious fungus has been quietly spreading the Globe and killing many of those in its path. Whats more, the CDC are trying to cover it up.

According to an article from the New York times last May an elderly gentleman was brought into the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood sample was taken and tests were performed, what they discovered was something they had never seen before, a deadly and mysterious germ. The man was quickly transferred to an isolated intensive care unit and Global Health Authorities were quickly notified. He died 90 days later but this new deadly Super fungus did not, tests showed the fungus had contaminated his entire room and it was so invasive specialised cleaning apparatus was required to eradicate the fungus.

Dr. Scott Lorin, the hospital’s president said:

“The mattress, the bed rails, the canister holes, the window shades, the ceiling, everything in the room was positive.”

What made Doctors and Health Authorities most concerned was its resistance to any anti-bacterial drugs that were thrown at it.

Panic Prevention – The Cover Up

Candida auris or C. auris as its being refereed as was first discovered back in 2015, Dr. Johanna Rhodes, an infectious disease expert working at the Imperial College in London got a call from the Royal Brompton Hosptial informing them that C. auris has taken root three months earlier and they still hadn’t managed to clear it. Dr. Rhodes explained how they “have no idea where it was coming from…..it’s just spread like wildfire”.

The hospital under the direction of health authorities used a specialised aerosolized hydrogen peroxide spray around the room where the patient who had the infection had been staying. Finally a growth medium was placed in the centre of the room to detect if any, what microbes survived the deep cleanse.

The only organism to survive the cleaning operation was C. auris.

At this point you’d assume the public may of been alerted of this new arising health threat, if so, you assumed incorrectly. Only patients were informed, health authorities urged for no public announcement.

“There was no need to put out a news release during the outbreak,”

Oliver Wilkinson, a spokesman for the hospital.

This cloud of secrecy didn’t just happen in London it was occurring all around the Globe, there have been thousands of people infected so far and wherever they are in the World this same hushed, secretive approach is taken. Apparently they don’t want to scare patients.

Which it undoubtedly would and rightfully so, since nearly half of all patients who contract C. auris die within 90 days according to the C.D.C.

‘With bacteria and fungi alike, hospitals and local governments are reluctant to disclose outbreaks for fear of being seen as infection hubs. Even the C.D.C., under its agreement with states, is not allowed to make public the location or name of hospitals involved in outbreaks. State governments have in many cases declined to publicly share information beyond acknowledging that they have had cases.’ [source]

Some of you maybe asking why authorities would keep such an issue like this secret, surely if the general public knew of this deadly health risk they could take special precautions – the measles outbreaks have been heavily publicised after all, with no concern whatsoever for public panic, in fact such panic is being encouraged via health authorities and the media.

The difference is, there is no gain from informing the public, not pharmaceutical currently on the market has proven overaly successful when treating a patient infected with C. auris and so there is no gain to be had from publicising the outbreaks. Whereas Measles, well we all know to well what the solution is for that.

This totally different approach in tackling a major health risk should alarm you, especially when you bare in mind that C. auris kills almost 50% of those it infects, whereas Measles kills at most 0.01%.

In the US alone, over 1500 people have been found to have the fungal infection so far, and due to the lack of appropriate equipment for testing the infection, and the ongoing attempts to stop the flow of information surrounding the fungus, the real number of cases could be significantly higher.

Serious Global Health Threat

The C.D.C state on their own website that Candida auris presents a serious global health threat:

‘Candida auris is an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat. C. auris causes severe illness in hospitalized patients in several countries, including the United States. Patients can remain colonized with C. auris for a long time.’ [source]

A Product of Heavy Pesticide Use?

There are several theories to how this Super Fungus came to be, what they know for sure is that there isn’t just a single strain of the fungus, analysing genomes from different samples from around the World they found that the sequencing was different in just about all locations. One researcher believes that these new deadly drug-resistant fungal strains are a result of our agricultural industry using heavy fungicides.

Dr. Meis began working with resistant fungi when he heard about the case of a 63-year-old patient in the Netherlands who died in 2005 from a fungus called Aspergillus. Aspergillus wasresistant to a front-line antifungal treatment called itraconazole. According to Meis, Itraconazole is a virtual copy of the azole pesticides that are used to dust crops the world over and account for more than one-third of all fungicide sales.

A paper published in 2013 concluded that it was no coincidence that the drug-resistant Aspergillus was showing up in the environment where the azole fungicides were used.

The theory by some is that C. auris may of benefitted from the heavy use of fungicides, it is thought that C. auris has likely been hidden away for thousands of years in uninhabited crevices around the World. With the emergence of mass agriculture and with it heavy pesticide usage much of the Worlds bacteria has been wiped out paving the way for a new strain, C. auris.

Where ever it came from, its here now and they don’t want you to know about it. You do now.
