‘SUPERBUG’ RESISTANT TO ANTIBIOTICS DETECTED ON IRISH BEACHES

Concerns have been raised after a form of superbug – resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics – was detected at two Irish beaches.

Researchers in Galway say there is a higher risk of the NDM enzyme being found wherever raw sewage is pumped into coastal waters.

The discovery is thought to be a first for European bathing water but there’s no evidence to suggest anyone has been infected by exposure to the enzyme.
