Seriously bad juju. e-coli that CANNOT be killed by ANY antibiotic is loose in China and spreading rapidly. It's already past containment measures. And the best part? The gene that is causing it to be immune to our best antibiotics is easily transferrable to other bacteria.

Awesome stuff.

GMOs are nothing to worry about. It is natural selection that will do us in.

Yes. A few of your Chinese porcine lovers.

Article just says 'Widespread E-coli bacteria that cannot be killed with the antiobiotic drug of last resort — colistin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colistin) — have been found in samples taken from farm pigs, meat products, and a small number of patients in south China," so I'm guessing not yet.

But if you can't kill the e-coli, how the hell does the patient survive?

Our immune systems have developed over millions of years, my guess is at least one breeding pair will survive.
