Superbugs in New Delhi Drinking Water


By Ken Buben, President, FancyScrubs.com

Scientists have found superbugs in New Delhi drinking water used by local people for drinking, washing and cooking.

The NDM 1 gene was found in two of the drinking-water samples and 51 of seepage samples, the researchers said, and bacteria positive for NDM 1 were grown from two drinking-water samples and 12 seepage samples.

Experts say the spread of superbugs threatens modern medicine with no effective antibiotics to ward off infections during surgery,  intensive care or cancer treatment.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated April 7 as World Health Day and under the slogan “No action today, no cure tomorrow” it is campaigning about the risks of life-saving antibiotics losing their healing power.
