The nation is about to look like the real-life version of Contagion!

A family of nightmare superbugs that are deemed untreatable and deadly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are spreading through hospitals in the U.S., leading doctors to believe it may be too late to stop them.

“These are nightmare bacteria that present a triple threat,” said Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “They’re resistant to nearly all antibiotics. They have high mortality rates, killing half of people with serious infections. And they can spread their resistance to other bacteria.”

Yikes! The class of superbugs, called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, have been found in mostly hospitals and nursing homes, not in communities.

But health officials are sending off warnings because if the bacteria’s spread isn’t contained soon, even common infections could become untreatable.

According to the CDC:

The superbug tends to strike immune-compromised people who are hospitalized for a long time or living in a nursing home, Frieden said. And CRE doesn’t spread easily from person to person, like the bacteria causing pink eye or strep throat.

These superbugs are “the biggest threat to patient safety in the hospital that we have,” said Costi Sifri, an infectious disease physician and hospital epidemiologist at the University of Virginia Health System. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like anything is slowing their spread.”

Hide yo kids and hide yo wife! Shit is about to get REAL.
