This bug is a psycho killer.  It could suck the life out of anyone with a weakened immune system, anyone undergoing an invasive procedure, or anyone with lines or tubes entering their body.  In other words, it could decimate the whole CKD population.

I read about this too and it is very very scary. They know that MRSA isn't just caught in hospitals anymore. It has jumped to spreading outside hospitals to communities. I know because I caught it several years ago. Now I fear that it won't be long that we start seeing Candida auris being spread too.

Specialists are projecting a plague, with 700,00 deaths this year, increasing to 10 million per year, from drug-resistant microbes.

Who has lower immunity, transplant recipients or dialysis patients?  For CKD patients in general, does immunity decrease in a linear fashion, in step with decreasing GFR?
