Cases & # 39; Superbug & # 39; confirmed in Maryland, Virginia – Story

– The Centers for Disease Control are warning residents in both Maryland and Virginia to be aware of a superb drug-resistant superbug that appears to be a threat to the region.

The CDC says there were three confirmed cases of C. auris, which is commonly known as drug-resistant "superbug" in Maryland and in one case in Virginia.

New Jersey officials confirmed 101 cases – and New York confirmed more than 300 cases.

The superbug grows like yeast – and the symptoms include difficulty swallowing, burning, itching of the genitals and sometimes a cheese-like discharge.

The fungus can spread through person-to-person contact or contact with a contaminated object.

Health officials say he has the potential to survive on surfaces for several weeks.

The fungus can also cause life-threatening infections when it enters a person's bloodstream.

So far, health officials have not revealed where infected patients live, or from which hospitals they sought treatment.
