Drug - Resistant Strain Of Shigella Spreading In U.S.

CDC fails to mention "novel" bacteria is man-made and released in order to further their never-ending quest to "cull the herd" in American and the world; shigella treated with Bactrim DS

NEW YORK - 

A drug-resistant strain of a nasty stomach bug made its way into the U.S. and spread, causing more than 200 illnesses since last May, health officials said Thursday.


Shigella
Many cases were traced to people who had recently traveled to the Dominican Republic, India or other countries. 

Outbreaks of the shigella bacteria are not unusual, but this strain is resistant to the antibiotic most commonly prescribed for adults.

"This is the first time we've documented this large an outbreak of antibiotic-resistant (shigella) linked to international travel," said Dr. Anna Bowen of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


Since last May, the imported superbug has sickened at least 243 people, with large recent outbreaks in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California.

Shigella is a common cause of diarrhea. The bacteria spread very easily through contaminated food or pools and ponds. Outbreaks also are common at daycare centers when staff members don't wash their hands well enough after changing diapers.




"Washing your hands with soap and water is important for everyone. Also, international travelers can protect themselves by choosing hot foods and drinking only from sealed containers," said Bowen.


DO NOT DELAY SEEKING TREATMENT
when symptoms manifest themselves
For most people, it's an unpleasant but temporary illness that ends within a week and can be helped with over-the-counter medicines like Pepto-Bismol or Imodium. 

Sometimes antibiotics are used: usually azithromycin for children and ciprofloxacin, sold as Cipro, for adults.

"These outbreaks show a troubling trend in Shigella infections in the United States," said CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. "Drug-resistant infections are harder to treat and because Shigella spreads so easily between people, the potential for more -- and larger -- outbreaks is a real concern."  



DO NOT believe the lies of the CDC
"We're moving quickly to implement a national strategy to curb antibiotic resistance because we can't take for granted that we'll always have the drugs we need to fight common infections."

The past few years, health officials have been detecting shigella bugs resistant to azithromycin. 

The Cipro-resistant superbug has sickened people in 32 states and Puerto Rico.



"It's moving itself around the country," but it's too early to know if the superbug has rooted in the United States for good, Bowen said.
