    germ or virus can overcame any resistant if they didn't be kill properly and if the government make any vaccination injection easily... only inject if the patient really are sick with the disease... you cant simply inject anybody... the virus can become immune... it just mean that the virus is more clever than we, human :)

    This was longer than six years ago.

    Someone has been digging in the graveyard again... or meddling in [ psychological ] necromancy. :eusa_whistle:

    Necrotizing Fasciitis (Flesh-Eating Bacteria)-Topic Overview

    It seems to me that this is similar to a common thing we also refer to as athlete's feet or jock itch. I don't know, though, just sayin'.

    Also there is this: Brain-jacking fungus turns living victims into 'zombies' ? The Register Which reminds me a bit of toxoplasmosis.

    And then there is this fascinating find: Ancient Meat-Eating Fungus Found Trapped in Amber Um, wow. Just wow.

    I was on all kinds of IV antibiotics for 9 days with that crap. From a cut that lost exactly one drop of blood, I very nearly lost my left hand. I assure you, it's nothing to joke about.

    That's what my husband died of. It will be two years ago in December. He didn't even have a cut. It looked like a rash on his thigh. We were told that even with surgery, he had a 50/50 chance. He didn't make it. He got it in October and by December he was gone.

    That's how my father died, it was about 6 months ago. He was looking like a rash on his thigh, Doctors recommended us that even though if they will make surgery he is not having enough time and having only 10 % chances to get cured.
