The fungus-resistant fungus, named Candida aureus, was discovered only 3 years ago.
But still one of the most terrifying names in the hospital’s microorganism is Candida Oris.
Pandemic attacks have taken place around the world. Research says that the rate of infection is increasing due to temperature rise.
The CDC, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says that to reduce its risk, it is important to know who is at highest risk of being infected with this fungus.
Here’s what you need to know about this new super bug:
What is Candida Oris?
Candida oris or c. Oris is a type of East or fungus or fungus that can cause infections in the human body.
It causes infections like the common fungus like candida albicans, which can cause infections in the mouth and throat.
The fungus was first found in the ear of a patient treated at Tokyo Metropolitan Geriatric Hospital in Japan on May 23.
Most of the time, Candida fungi live on our skin without causing any damage.
However, if we get sick or move to a sensitive place like bloodstream or lungs, it can cause infection.
What kind of illness does it create?
In most cases c. Oris creates a bloodstream infection in the human body.
In addition, the respiratory system, the central nervous system, various internal organs of the body and the skin can cause infections.
Its infection is quite serious. All over the world, who c. About 5 percent of those who died of Aries’ infection died.
The fungus is usually drug-resistant, making it difficult to prevent infection.
Also, many times c. Aureus infection is mistaken for any other illness. Due to which wrong treatment is given.
That means the patient will either have to seek treatment for longer or his condition will get worse.
“Public health England is asking for help since the fungal infection is pandemic in several hospitals in the UK,” said Disease Control Practitioner and UCL Clinical Lecturer. Elaine Cloutman-Green.
He added: “C. aureus lives in a hospital environment, so it needs to be kept clean to control it. Since it is difficult to control, infection can be a cause for concern for both the patient and the hospital.”
Medical microbiologist of the Department of Public Health and National Infection Services in England. Colin Brown claimed, “In those hospitals where the C ori’s infection was most prevalent under the National Health Service Department, no one actually died from the infection.”
“The Department of Public Health is working with the National Health Service Department to provide expert opinion and help with various preventive measures to prevent transmission of C. auris,” he said.
Should you be worried about the infection?
Usually c. Oris infection is usually not one of them. However, if you have been in hospital or nursing home for a long time, and need to take large amounts of antibiotics due to medical treatment, then c. The fear of being hit by Aris increased.
Because of the antibiotic c. Oris kills the good bacteria against infection.
Six patients in the UK from the age of 25 to C. Oris has been infected.
The US Department of Disease Control says, in many countries around the world, C. News of Oris’ infection is reported.
Most of the European countries have reported the infection. The infection was reported in Greece last April.
C. Why is Oris resistant to common drugs?
Patients who c. Most of the people who have been affected by Oris have been exposed to common fungal antibacterial drugs, such as fluconazole.
That means, these drugs are c. Oris doesn’t even work under control.
Because of this. Fewer anti-fungal drugs are used in the treatment of Oris infection. However, these drugs have also developed preventive measures. Oris.
DNA tests found that c. Cases with the Aris fungicide-resistant genes. The genes of the Albanians are quite similar.
That means that drug-resistant genes have been spread from one species to another.
How has climate change affected the number of infections?
One study found that due to climate change, c. As the Arius fungus is forced to survive at high temperatures, its infection rate has increased.
Most fungi like to live on the ground at low temperatures. But as global temperatures rise, high temperatures have forced C to adapt. Oris.
And because of this, it is easy for them to survive in the human body as the temperature in the body is 5 to 5 degrees Celsius.
What can be done to reduce the number of infections?
To reduce the number of infections, we must first identify who is at risk of getting the fungus.
Health care workers need to know that those who spend long hours in hospitals or nursing homes for treatment are most at risk of being infected with such a super bug.
All the hospital c. Orris is not similarly identified. It is often thought of as a common fungal infection, such as wounds in the mouth and throat, and is given the wrong treatment.
If advanced treatment is possible at the initial stage of C. It is possible to detect Oris infection. And it is possible to prevent infection in other patients by giving proper treatment.
C. Oris is quite powerful and can survive for long in an open environment.
It cannot be killed with ordinary detergents and infectious chemicals.
In hospitals where this super bug has been infected, the infection can be prevented by using appropriate cleaning chemicals.
