A look into the battle between Maryland and D.C. to host Washington's football team. And we speak to the newly elected Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro.
From the halls of the World Health Organization to the White House, health officials have called the growing problem of antibiotic resistance — or the rise of “superbugs” — one of the most pressing public health issues of our time. Now, in one of the first studies of its kind, the D.C. Hospital Association has taken a hyper-local look at the prevalence of one deadly superbug, CRE, in major hospital facilities across the city. While the results don’t raise serious alarm bells, they give area doctors a baseline to monitor potential outbreaks like the one that happened at Bethesda’s National Institutes of Health in 2011. Kojo finds out how local hospitals performed in the superbug study, and explores how we can reduce the spread of drug-resistant bacteria in our daily lives.
