The NDM 1 gene, which creates what some experts describe as “super superbugs”, has spread to germs that cause cholera and dysentery, and is circulating freely in other bacteria in the Indian city capital of 14 million people, the researchers said.

“The inhabitants of New Delhi are continually being exposed to multidrug-resistant and NDM 1-positive bacteria”, said Mark Toleman of Britain’s Cardiff University School of Medicine, who published the findings in a study on Thursday.

A “substantial number” of them are consuming such bacteria on a daily basis, he told a briefing in London. “We believe we have discovered a very significant underlying source of NDM 1 in the capital city of India,” he said.

NDM 1, or New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase 1, makes bacteria resistant to almost all antibiotics, including the most powerful class, called carbapenems.

My Comment:

As a Christian, there is not one day that goes by that I do not see an “end time” sign on the news.

This resistant superbug is what Our Lord and Savior calls pestilence as an end time sign.

Matthew 24:3-8 

“And you will be hearing of wars an rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines, and pestilence’s and earthquakes. “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

Our Messiah Jesus Christ is near. It is not too late to pick up the Word of God, and accept his salvation.

Matthew 3:2

and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”
