Genetic bug discovered in Delhi resurfaces in the Arctic region

Jan 29, 2019 16:30 IST

An antiobiotic-resistant gene that was initially discovered in India has been spotted in the Arctic region, some 16,000 kms away. The genetic bug's far-flung encroachment reveals how rapid and fast-moving the spread of antibiotic resistance has become. The bug was discovered in a remote terrain with almost no population save for some research groups and is said to have been carried over by migratory birds according to findings published in the Environmental International journal.
