Mutants In The News — Contagion Edition

Wired reported this last week, but I wanted further confirmation before posting...

...and now the BBC has chimed in.

For the first time, docs in India are reporting a strain of tuberculosis completely resistant to antibiotics.

Not "partially resistant", not "multi-drug resistant"...but "totally drug resistant" and "incurable".

  1. It's new to India (where it's probably going to be a big problem) but it's cropped up before in Italy and Iran. Scary stuff, though.
