Almost untreatable superbug CPE poses serious threat to patients, doctors warn | Society | The Guardian
New figures show that four times as many people have died as had previously been reported in an outbreak in Manchester.

In 2009, the first cases of a type of CPE called Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase were detected. In 2014, the hospital trust confirmed that 14 people had died from this infection, contracted within the hospital, in the previous four years.

But the Bureau’s research shows that there have been 61 deaths in the last seven years, including a six-year-old boy with leukaemia who caught the infection while undergoing a bone marrow transplant.

Rise of deadly super bugs in hospitals linked to Tory austerity cuts - The London Economic
An ‘appalling’ rise in deadly super bugs E.coli and MRSA is linked to the Conservatives cutting and outsourcing cleaning contracts, according to GMB.

Three thousand cleaners have been slashed from the NHS wage bill since 2011/12, new figures reveal – despite hospitals treating more than a million more patients every year since then.

Meanwhile in the past year cases of E.coli, MRSA and MSSA – a strain of the MRSA bacteria – have rocketed by more than 8,000.
