CBS news is reporting “An official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there’s no reason for people to be overly concerned, right now, about the discovery in a Pennsylvania woman of an infection that’s resistant to one of the world’s “last-resort” anti-bacterial drugs.”

“The Pennsylvania woman is the first person in the country to be infected with bacteria containing a gene that makes it resistant to colistin, a so-called “last-resort” antibiotic.”

“The CDC plans to beef up laboratory response to the situation.
