"I would say we controlled the outbreak, but we're in constant danger of transmission from patients still here," she said. "We're not out of the woods yet."
...
"This is the moment that my professors talked about when we would run out of antibiotics," said Palmore, recalling lectures two decades ago warning of a new era of nasty superbugs.

Last year a deadly superbug spread through the nation's leading research hospital, killing six patients before it could be stopped.
