WHO says it will assist India in superbug study
New Delhi, Apr 14: The World Health Organisation (WHO) today said it will assist India in its study to check the presence of multi-drug resistant superbug and whether it is a health hazard.
"We will be assisting Indian government in the research on whether the superbug is a health threat or not," Nata Menabde, WHO Country Representative, said.
Menabe said one has to confront science through science. "Whether or not it's a public heath threat needs to be established through research," she said.
The study comes in the backdrop of reputed medical journal Lancet publishing a research paper that that NDM-1, a bacteria with multi-drug resistant gene, was found in sewage and drinking water samples in the capital.
