The Centers for Disease Control says a potentially life-threatening super fungus is spreading across the country, including here in New York State.
Candida Auris is a potentially deadly infection that’s also very difficult to treat. Experts say the most vulnerable patients are those who are already in hospitals and nursing homes.
CDC says the infection has already reached 14 states in the U.S., with more than 300 cases across New York.
Doctors say taking the simplest of precautions, like washing your hands frequently, can help protect you.
