In a joint conference, CDC and NASA delivered a striking blow to human ambition and ingenuity, announcing that MRSA has officially colonized Mars. Defeating the dreams of such forward thinkers as Elon Musk and Richard Branson, aggressive MRSA became the first earth based organism to take hold of the Red Planet.
Infections Disease attending Dr. Emma Rassé informed the stunned audience of physicians and astronauts that MRSA can now routinely be detected in craters, rock formations as well as door handles and nursing homes of the red planet.
In a follow on announcement, ID specialist Dr. Anna Robes informed the deflated audience that resistant Pseudomonas has now taken a firm hold on the ,oon. Venereal disease expert Dr. Estée Dee went on to add that multi-resistant gonorrhea was expected to be the first earth-based life form to leave the solar system.
The American Academy of Infections Diseases was divided on gonorrhea’s suitability to be the first contact of terrestrial life forms with alien races. ICD-10 codes for bacterial colonization of distant worlds are expected shortly.
