China's Hospitals Preparing NDM-1 Bacteria Treatment

China's Ministry of Health on Saturday issued guidelines urging full preparations at medical institutions nationwide for treating the multi-drug resistant NDM-1 bacteria.

According to the guidelines, it is likely that the bacteria is mainly transmitted through close contact, with key vulnerable groups being patients with serious illnesses, those chronically taking antibiotics or receiving mechanical assistance for breathing.

The guidelines said that symptoms for patients infected with NDM-1 are no different than those presented by antibiotic-sensitive bacterium, but they are resistant to ordinary antibiotic treatments.
