UW Health Warn of Deadly Fungus

Officials with UW Health in Madison say a potentially deadly fungus that is considered a health threat by the CDC has been found at local facilities. 

Infectious Disease expert Doctor Dave Andes says “a few cases” of candida auris have appeared at the university health care center.  Doctor Andes says infection from the fungus remains very uncommon and should not be a cause for alarm among the general public.  The CDC currently has one clinical case of candida auris noted for the State of Wisconsin.
