‘Super fungus’ takes its chance because of the corona virus

According to Hagen, the fungus has also been found in Pakistan, India and the United States. Patients usually contract him in hospitals. The Dutchman also took the fungus from abroad. “People are immediately asked in which countries the person has been and the patient is admitted to an isolation room and treated by hospital staff wearing protective clothing.”


People who contract the fungus have between a 30 and 60 percent chance of dying from it, depending on where the infection is. “The fungus is deadly because candida auris (the medical name of the fungus, ed.) Causes septicemia,” says the microbiologist.

The fungus is now spreading more easily through Hong Kong as isolation rooms in hospitals are now occupied by corona patients. As a result, the patients with candida auris remain in common areas, so that it can spread around.
