Sunday – Killer Superbugs

  • Sunday 28 May

Stored in a freezer at minus 26 degrees is potentially the most deadliest superbug yet discovered. MCR-1 is a bacteria untreatable by even the world's strongest antibiotics. We go inside the top-secret US military facility where scientists are desperately trying to beat this frightening contagion. It's not difficult to contract one of these drug-resistant superbugs explains one Australian woman who lost her arm, shoulder and very nearly her life.
