    October 17, 2012

    A deadly superbug that has killed people in Europe and North America has arrived in Australia, but experts fear it is being missed because of inadequate testing.

    Professor Riley (no relation, I'm sure) said he believed there was a “massive under-reporting” of the bug, and health departments around the country had been too slow to respond.

    *** “I'm really scared about this. I think we are heading for a very dark time, I'm afraid,” he said. ***

    In the past 12 to 18 months, the 244 strain had gone from being non-existent in Australia to being the third most common strain of C diff, accounting for five per cent of tested cases.

    (Can't post the link, it's from an Aussie news site.)
