A Deadly Fungus That Kills 30% to 60% of Those It Infects, and Which Is Also Highly Resistant to Current Drugs, Is Spreading Rapidly In Health Care Facilities

So... I'm actually at a health care facility right now as I publish this. (I wrote it advance knowing I'd be out of my home office during the day.)

So obviously I'm going to come down with this.


Cases of a deadly fungus have tripled in the U.S. from 2019 to 2021, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Candida aurist was reported in the U.S. in 2016 and cases have climbed ever since. Annual clinical case counts rose to 476 in 2019 before increasing to 756 in 2020, a 59% jump. Cases then soared to 1,471 in 2021, which is an additional 95% jump.

Colonization screening of cases also increased, researchers from the CDC wrote in the Annals of Internal Medicine. There were 1,310 cases in 2020, a 21% increase from 2019, and a 209% increase to 4,041 cases in 2021.

There were a total of 3,270 clinical cases and 7,413 screening cases of C. auris from 2019 to 2021, with 17 states reporting their initial cases.


Cases of a deadly fungus in the U.S. have tripled from 2019 to 2021, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


The authors from the CDC wrote that, since its detection in the U.S., C. auris "has continued to cause illness and death nationwide." They also said the CDC has rated it as "an 'urgent threat,' the highest level of concern, because it is often multidrug-resistant; spreads easily in healthcare facilities; and can cause severe, invasive infections with high mortality rates."

Treatment-resistant cases rose from six pan-resistant and three echinocandin-resistant isolates reported in 2020 to seven pan-resistant and 19 echinocandin-resistant isolates in 2021.

"Even this subtle increase is concerning because echinocandins are the first-line therapy for invasive Candida infections and most C. auris infections," the authors wrote. "Several new antifungal medications are in development, but more research is needed to understand outcomes for patients with these highly resistant strains and to guide treatment."

One of the authors, Meghan Lyman, wrote in a press release that "the rapid rise and geographic spread of cases is concerning and emphasizes the need for continued surveillance, expanded lab capacity, quicker diagnostic tests, and adherence to proven infection prevention and control."

The CDC's 2019 Antibiotic Resistance Threats Report identified C. auris as an urgent threat in the U.S.

Dr. Siegel explains below that candida auris is, unfortunately for the elderly and immunocompromised, especially dangerous to those who are already weakened. Most healthy people will fight it off.

But the fungus is spreading rapidly, and is only one bad mutation away from becoming a much more serious threat.

Fortunately there's no one in the entire world who would perform gain-of-function research on candida auris to make it into a deadly worldwide pandemic.

This just in: Yes there is.

Why should I trust them? Why should I trust that this real, and is dangerous, and is spreading fast? They have completely destroyed their credibility. This could be real. It could be dangerous. But I have no reason to believe them about it.

I just heard about a lady who just got over shingles and the coof at the same time. She had both those ailments concurrently and said she was praying to die.

Gee I wonder how it happens that she gets these now, maybe because her immune system is shot all the hell to fvck because of all the jabbings?

I think they've decided to make SS solvent by decreasing life expectancy. Maybe they can kill off enough so that 70 is a reasonable age to retire and die.

Also, I've mentioned my cousin on dialysis. He's vaxxed and boosted, wore the mask and got Covid. They gave him OTC meds and he recovered okay. Was thinking about why he doesn't have these long term, post recovery issues. It's Vitamin D. They monitor it on dialysis patients and make sure it stays high. So take vitamin D3 and vitamin K!

Posted by: Bulgaroctonus

My family raised bees for years. Dad had some pretty mean hives but we don't think they were Africanized. Just mean - every hive has a personality. That blows if the A. bees continue to make inroads into the North. They can kill - especially kids and smaller animals.

210 We already know they have little to no understanding of biology. It's unlikely a fungus would be able to spread worldwide to wipe out humanity. There are such a wide range of temperatures and humidities on Earth, it's just not feasible that a fungus could evolve or be manufactured to survive them all.

But wearing masks all the time would provide the fungus with a warm, moist, and mobile growth medium. Cuts way down on the variety of environments it would need to adapt to.

Oh for crying out loud. This guy has no clue about the differences between fungi and viruses when it comes to infectivity, modes of transmission, lethality or evolution. Why is he even on the air any more?

Candida species are ubiquitous, in the soil, on your floors and surfaces, on your skin, etc. They largely are not spread by person-to-person contact, but by fomites. They are not well-suited to pandemic type spread. Nowhere near the level of respiratory viruses.

295 In April 2014, Hunter joined the board of Burisma, just two years before Joe Biden stated he forced the firing of Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma. Despite Hunter’s lack of experience in Ukraine or the energy sector, he was paid $83,000 per month by the energy company, or $1 million per year — just weeks after his father was announced “point person” on U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine.

Emails previously released from the Archives show Hunter advised the Office of Vice President Biden in 2014 on how to handle media inquiries regarding his position on the board of Burisma, a potential violation of federal law due to Hunter failing to register as a foreign agent.

335 Tony Orlando & Dawn: "Sweet Gypsy Rose" was the one about the housewife who leaves her family to be a stripper.

On their variety TV show, they used to do comedy bits with Thelma, one of the two women who made up "Dawn," zinging Tony the way Cher used to get Sonny on their variety program. Thelma went on to act in a couple of sitcoms, I think.

TO & D (originally just "Dawn") were very good at what they did, catchy pop music that made you whistle. And "Yellow Ribbon" has outlived all of them.

These have always been the real concerns - because viral respiratory ailments always burn themselves out. COVID was never the threat it was made out to be. It was bad, for sure. But in the end it was never going to be THAT bad. Bacterial and fungus infections on the other hand can get dangerous quick - thankfully they don't transmit all that easily, but hospitals fight like crazy to keep them out of their facilities. The problem here, besides what Mr. Mannix says, is that we have a bunch more immunocompromised people in the population now due to the vaccine (I think this is now pretty well accepted medically, though not well understood). So one of these gets loose in a hospital full of old people? Not good.

Docs couldn't figure out what it was and as a last resort pulled some marrow that was sent to the Mayo Clinic. Diagnosis came a day or two after he passed.
