During their study, the researchers isolated C. auris from two sites: a salt marsh wetland where virtually no people ever go, and a beach with more human activity.

According to researchers, the infection from the superbug can show “no symptoms before turning into a fever and chills”. These symptoms won’t go away despite the use of medicines and can lead to death. The researchers also added that the superbug C. auris survives on the skin before entering the body through wounds.
