Newborns affected by hospital 'super-bug'
27 August 2013 @ 21:56

TWO infants at Córdoba's Reina Sofía hospital (pictured) have been found to be infected with the klebseilla pneumoniae virus, one of whom has died.

Staff at the centre say they now have the outbreak of the bug, which is immune to antibiotics, under control and newborns thought to be carriers are being isolated.

In total, the virus has been found in nine children since it claimed its first victim a week ago – a newborn baby girl – and a baby boy is said to have become infected since.

Medics say the infant is responding well to treatment.
