The full title is : Deadly germs, Lost cures: A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy

After reading this article, along with all the other warnings about antibiotic resistant bugs, those who say, "One day a bug will come and destroy much of the human race" might be on to something ? What is deadly about this fungus is it permeates just about everything in its' surroundings. In a poor country where the technology is also limited I could see this stuff (Candida Auris) getting way out of hand.


Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious.

Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe.

Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa .

Recently C. auris reached New York , New Jersey and Illinois, leading the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to add it to a list of germs deemed “urgent threats.”

The man at Mount Sinai died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.

Sounds like one lovely yeast infection.

There are different theories as to what happened with C. auris. Dr. Meis, the Dutch researcher, said he believed that drug-resistant fungi were developing thanks to heavy use of fungicides on crops.


Gee, thanks Monsanto...

Thank you for posting this 727Sky.

I've never been one to reference the bible,but look how things are panning out,there is a rogue star system in our system,with it is debris,which plays out as the 7 plagues,when the bible was written this was 1st hand knowledge,the earth gets destroyed in ,sucks because we are in that stage now cycle

I would hazard a guess that this was a developed strain, ie a bio weapon.

It is truly just too good at what it does.

It appeared suddenly and is highly resistant.

Is capable of infecting a whole hospital room ... not just the patient!

Truly remarkable.

these four divergers seem to be thriving in the hostile, toxic environment we have presented them with. adaptation seems to be simplistic and favourable conditions for clustering available almost everywhere.

background count (rads) ramped after fuku and black fungus appeared all over Tokyo and surrounding areas.
samples were rich in radioisotopes and the supersizing got a boost imo.

lol and I thought c.diff was problematic!

The infection - a fungus known as Candida auris, kills almost half of all patients who contract it within 90 days, according to the CDC - as it's impervious to most major antifungal medications. First described in 2009 after a 70-year-old Japanese woman showed up at a Tokyo hospital with C. auris in her ear canal, the aggressive yeast infection has spread across Asia and Europe - arriving in the US by 2016.

The earliest known case in the United States involved a woman who arrived at a New York hospital on May 6, 2013, seeking care for respiratory failure. She was 61 and from the United Arab Emirates, and she died a week later, after testing positive for the fungus. At the time, the hospital hadn’t thought much of it, but three years later, it sent the case to the C.D.C. after reading the agency’s June 2016 advisory. -NYT

"It is a creature from the black lagoon," said the CDC's Dr. Tom Chiller, who heads the fungal branch. "It bubbled up and now it is everywhere."

In the last five years alone, it it has swept through a hospital in Spain, hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, spread throughout India, Pakistan and South Africa, and forced a prestigious British medical center to close its ICU for nearly two weeks.

I think we'd see it's light if there were a rogue star in our system, not to mention it would really be noticed by it's gravity.

Yeah, I read that in the first link. Scary stuff.

I'd be willing to bet this is a GMO. I suspect it might be from some cellulose -> ethanol/methanol research or possibly cellulose -> acid (vinegar/acetic acid - making a high tolerance yeast that lives at higher concentrations) as IIRC, this is from the same family that does this type of conversion. I know there was a lot of research into this field and they were trying to modify natural bacteria and yeasts to produce higher concentrations and even convert things other than sugars (regular cellulose like corn husks/stalks, straw, etc) into useable chemicals.

I don't believe this yeast/bacteria was never discovered or seen before until 2009, and it has show up b/c it was created in a lab.

So how does a whole room become contaminated from one patient? Places in the room he couldn't have touched or been near. So either this is shed from his skin and wafted about as the bed covers were changed etc landing on surfaces all over the room, or it came from his breath and wafted round the room, both of there scenarios would allow this to spread to other rooms and patients via air flow or being carried by staff as it transferred to them during his care. OR it was already coating the room, and every other room, because it is in our general atmosphere, just the other rooms were not tested and he along with just about everyone on the planet has this but his immune system was not strong enough to keep it under control making it appear he was the one contaminating everything.

Or came from his farts, wafted slowly out from his covers and mattress , or by the nurse frantically waving her arms and hands in the air from the wafting gas as she changes the sheets.

Someday people will understand from a scientific perspective that you can't eliminate human diseases. There is a no-net-loss factor that just pushes them around like whack-a-mole. There is a material field at work.

“Everything Is in Place and Nobody Can Stop Us Now”

In 1969, a doctor who worked for Rockefeller’s Planned Parenthood gave a dinner speech to medical students and doctors. One doctor in the audience, Lawrence Dunegan, was pretty upset about it and finally in 1988 re-told it on Randy Engels radio show. In the 2000s it appeared at rense.com under the title “The New Order of Barbarians.”

Dr Lawrence Dunegan, desribed Dr Richard Day as an insider of the "Order,"

At point 30. He said there would be new diseases to appear which had not ever been seen before. Would be very difficult to diagnose and be untreatable – at least for a long time.

Global warming + climate changes + ever growing and speedy melting of glaciers will release” ancient organism “gradually from both poles into the oceans and atmosphere. Not a hard science to understand….


Expect more of these…

So you think "climate change" is more likely than a GMO? Really?

Gee, thanks Monsanto...


Just as after a shooting, blaming the maker of the bullets instead of the person shooting the gun.

You're comparing the spread of a fungi to someone shooting people?
Fungi spreads, that's what it does...
