It stays on inanimate surfaces for long periods and is a necessity before turning into a pandemic

A fatal yeast-like fungal infection known as the “white spot disease” fungus has recently emerged, which experts describe as an almost “perfect pathogen”.

According to reports; Fungi can be fatal. Especially if it enters the bloodstream, usually through catheters or other tubes that enter the body in a healthcare setting; According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Experts first recognized this type of fungus in 2009, and it is almost resistant to antifungal drugs. According to Jonah Rhodes, an epidemiologist at Imperial College London.

According to “Russia Today”, “Rhodes”, which helped treat the “white spot disease” fungus outbreak in England in 2016, said: The drug resistance of fungi is not only what makes it so impressive.

“One of the things that makes the ‘white spot disease’ fungus so scary is the fact that it can remain on inanimate surfaces for long periods,” she told New Scientist.

Dr. Tom Chiller, who directs the fungus control division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said: Nobody really knows where it came from.

He added, “It is a creature from the Black Lake. It has exploded and is now everywhere.”

Experts said it was crucial to develop better weapons against enemies like the “white spot disease” now, before it becomes the next pandemic.

“We need to invest more in research and development, and prepare our defenses against all types of infectious pathogens,” said Mahmoud Ghanoum, a fungal disease specialist at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.
