Candida Auris

Candida Auris
 

News: The drug-resistant fungus Candida auris (C. auris) was only discovered some 15 years ago but is already one of the world's most feared hospital microbes.
 

About:
 Candida auris (C. auris) is a yeast, a family of fungus which contains species pretty helpful to humans in activities such as bread-making and beer-brewing, but which also features species that cause infections in humans.
 Most of the time, Candida yeasts live on our skin without causing problems, but they can cause infections if we are unwell or they get into the wrong place, like the bloodstream or the lungs.
 

What illness does it cause?
 C. auris most frequently causes bloodstream infections, but it can also affect the respiratory system, the central nervous system and internal organs, as well as the skin.
 

How does it spread?
 Transmission is mainly through contaminated surfaces in hospitals.
 

How is Climate change attributing to rise in cases?
 According to recent study, C. auris infections have become so common may be because this species has been forced to live at higher temperatures because of climate change.
 Most fungi prefer the cooler temperatures found in soil. But, as global temperatures have risen, C. auris has been forced to adapt to higher temperatures.
