a miss is as good as a mile

So back in 2009 they cultured Candida auris from the ear of an elderly Japanese woman.

Since then, four different infectious strains have appeared on the scopes of infectious disease control specialists, and they are all very damned hard to kill.

Almost impossible.

So you can understand that looking back on 2014, and remembering that the CPAP place gave me an unsanitized loaner, I’m figuring I dodged a bullet.

So unless you get a loaner CPAP along with a note saying that it’s been sanitized sufficiently to kill C. auris, DON’T.
