REVEALED: 'Superbug' fungus resistant to major drugs is found spreading in two hospitals in Dallas and a nursing home in Washington, DC

A 'superbug' fungus that is resistant to common drugs has been found in two hospitals and a nursing home, health officials have revealed.

The fungus was identified at a nursing home in Washington, DC and two hospitals in Dallas, Texas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The two outbreaks included about 120 patients in total.

Of those, infections in five patients were resistant to all types of antifungal medications and three patients died.

This fungus is considered a 'serious global health threat' by the CDC, and evidence from these new outbreaks shows that it spreads from person to person - not just from treatments or hospital surfaces.
