    Scary, scary, scary. Diabetics with blood sugar control issues will be particularly susceptible. When this hits the US a lot of people are going to die.

    As a kid lived for a while in Tucson and was stationed at Holloman AFB in New Mexico and lived in that area for about 10 years after I got out. Some really nasty stuff in the desert, Valley fever, plague, different rodent vector diseases and most require massive treatment and chances of surviving after SHTF would be close to 0. The same with the mosquito and tick diseases we are now seeing in the USA. Several of the southwest native American groups treated rodents as a huge threat and basically lived with rattle snakes. We tend to forget that a large area in Africa was basically not used until we figured out how to control diseases carried by biting flies and that the first attempt to build the Panama Canal failed due to mosquito diseases. I am afraid it would be a vary serious loss of population if modern medicine and public health were not available. In the long run we would either learn to live with the diseases , develop a resistance to them, or die out.

    From the article SeePalaces linked:
    "In fact, the strains were genetically different on different continents—suggesting that C. auris had not begun in one place and then spread by transmission, but had arisen simultaneously everywhere, for reasons no one could discern."

    In epidemiology this cannot occur. There is always a patient "0". it may be impossible to find the original animal/plant vector for "0", but it always starts in a single place.
    Putting on my chrome-vanadium hat - I smell a rat. Perhaps this was created, or found and nurtured, then distributed as a bio time bomb. I wonder if it has a preference for specific branches of the human genome.....

    Edit: From another article linked of f the CDC's site: Candida auris | Candida auris | Fungal Diseases | CDC
    The Unexpected and Troubling Rise of Candida auris

    'C auris has reportedly never been isolated from the natural environment, and it does not seem to have been a common colonizer of humans before 2009. More research is needed to understand where in the environment C auris lives and why it began affecting humans only recently."

    That is a truly frightening paragraph. These organisms do not just magically appear.

    Anyone ever read Clancy's "Executive Orders"? A novel centered around our friendly neighborhood Persians discovering how to use Ebola as a weapon?

    Wait until they start brewing beer with it. Wonder if it will make Old Milwaukee taste any better.

    At times it seems more hospital rooms are under isolation or communicable disease threat, then not, comes in waves.
    There for awhile it was looking pretty grim at the Houston V.A. now very few rooms are isolated rooms.

    There's no help for that stuff. A 12 pack of full cans is best used as targets.

    That is truly scary. It seems like it is being purposely spread. Like a science experiment.

    They are called space bugs. Because all rational known terrestrial explanations have been exhausted.

    Wonder if there's a secret, undocumented vaccination for it that only the "elite" have access to. After all - some animals are more equal than other animals.

    Yes Special people have access to treatments drugs and inoculations. As I recall Micheal Jackson and Howard Hughes had personal doctors portable emergency room and a nice collection of pharmaceuticals.

    I took an interest in this man and watched as the numerous agencies went after him and finally stole his patents, and kept him in court so where it looked as if he lived there. his cancer survivors left to die by great medical minds once they were diagnosed with stage IV cancer supported him financially because his treatments saved them. Stage IV is where they tell you get your affairs in order and get on hospice but yet 6 out of 10 of his patients were surviving. the trolls and a collection of paid hit pieces from people that had no experience or contact with him or any of his patients have done their best to destroy his work character and research. Had he been a real quack he would not have had an y survivors, it's that simple.

    You are correct because it is hitting the elderly and the sick. Both cost money and are not being productive. Awful to say but if you are enjoying your Golden years then you are not working most likely.

    My guess wouldn't be money. My guess would be eco terrorism. When you think about it, every single thing that the greens want could be achieved by pandemic.
