Drug-Resistant Bacteria At Tijuana Hospital Reignites Urgency To Find Superbug Treatments

A drug-resistant superbug outbreak in Tijuana prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to issue a second travel warning this week, after nearly a dozen U.S. patients who traveled to the region for selective surgeries between August and December returned with potentially deadly infections.

“Over half of those infected with these bacteria had surgery at Grand View Hospital, Tijuana,” the CDC stated. “The others became infected after surgery at other hospitals and clinics.”
