It’s been more than six months and authorities concerned have not been able to stop the spread of a deadly germ, which has caused havoc in the nation’s leading hospital. It is not that the action was not being taken to stop the infection, as the National Institutes of Health take up the charge of the matter.
They ensured that water pipes are being cleaned and patients maintain complete hygiene. However, then also 18 people were suffering from the disease and other six people list their life due to blood infection caused by the germ.
Experts at the National Institutes of Health were of the view that they brought five patients, who were lucky enough to survive the disease to the NIH campus. Main aim of getting them was to know about the disease in detail.
After assessing them, it was revealed that the disease has spread from a single person, who was carrying the germ known as Klebsiella pneumonia. “They were able to demonstrate that this sneaky little bug was able to stay alive and get transmitted in ways they hadn't quite predicted before”, said Dr. Sara Cosgrove, who is an associate hospital epidemiologist and has been working with Johns Hopkins University.
