    The WHO has a track record of crying wolf over these so called crisis. While the problem is undoubtedly real, we can be certain that the WHO has exaggerated its threat.

    • One of the scary things about the E. coli with the NDM gene is that it will happily spread in the community, not just in hospitals. That means that hospital protocols are largely ineffective in containing it. Not cause for panic, but extreme concern is probably warranted.
