Experts Say Drug-Resistant Superbug No Serious Threat in Slovenia

Ljubljana, 18 August - Slovenian health experts said Wednesday that a new antibiotic-resistant bug known as NDM-1, recently found in India and already spreading around the world, posed no serious threat in Slovenia. There are other "less media-hyped" bacteria from countries closer to Slovenia that are a bigger problem, infectologist Milan Cizman said.
