Triple Threat: New Pneumonia Is Drug-Resistant, Deadly And Contagious
http://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda...contagious

Quote:In the past few years, there have been so many "superbugs" appearing in hospitals around the world that we here at Goats and Soda haven't had the time or resources to report on all of them.

But a new type of pneumonia emerging in China seems so important that we dropped what we were doing to write about it.

Doctors in Hangzhou in southeastern China have detected a a type of pneumonia that is both highly drug-resistant and very deadly. It also spreads easily.

The bacterium — a type of Klebsiella pneumoniae — killed five people in an intensive care unit in Hangzhou in 2016, researchers reported Tuesday in the journal Lancet Infectious Diseases.

Shit's fucked.

This is just more evidence of god's wrath for our sinful ways and not any sign that natural selection drives genetic changes

Repent now and pray the pneumonia away!

Sooo... purge Hangzhou with flames?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
