Taiwan reports first case of NDM-1

Taiwan's disease control bureau has said that it detected the bacteria, carrying the New Delhi metallo-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) gene, in a wounded Taiwan cameraman just back from India.

The cameraman was shot and wounded last month in India, and he was found carrying an antibiotics-resistant bacteria containing NDM-1 in his intestines after clinical tests, though he developed no symptoms, the bureau said, reports Xinhua.
