This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, traces history of the antifungal drug-resistant disease Candida auris that originates in healthcare facilities worldwide. According to the Center for Disease Control Candida auris is easily misidentified because it is a type of yeast that effects long-term patients in hospitals and nursing homes who require breathing and/or feeding tubes, and/or central venous catheters. Because Candida auris is a healthcare facility generated disease the New York Times claimed there is a lot of secrecy as to which hospitals have this cleaning problem. For your benefit I have broken out the difference between what countries and states the CDC reports and which actual healthcare facilities or cities that have been identified by the media and in medical research papers since 2009.
