According to the article antibiotics have been proved more or less useless. It has also been noted that a person with a strong immune system was usually protected. It would make sense for health scientists to look for bacteria that would be effective in destroying growths of these Candida Auris fungus. These could be applied to an infected individual to destroy the fungus. The new problem is the bacterial infection. It may be possible that the bacteria could be eliminated with antibiotics afterwards and/or can build up the immune system of the infected individual. Note that
I am not a medical doctor but a retired Professor of
