Scientists believe that the bacterium appeared in Congo around 2004. Since then, it has managed to spread in several cities of the country. Researchers studied the microbe using samples taken from patients from three different locations. In 51 samples, multidrug-resistant bacteria were detected. Scientists said that the supermicrobe is "thoroughly prepared for the effects on the human body."
