The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued a warning about a so-called fungal “superbug” that has sickened more than 600 people across the world.

CDC officials say that Candida auris, a type of yeast, has been causing severe illness in hospitalized patients by entering and spreading through the bloodstream. They also say that Candida auris poses a serious global health threat because it is resistant to multiple anti-fungal drugs used to treat infections.

Eleven of the United States are dealing Candida auris — New Jersey has the third highest number with 104 cases.

More information about the fungus can be found on the CDC Web site.
