Imagine a dystopian science-fiction future where hospital ventilation systems are pumping out a deadly superbug, right into the open atmosphere, where winds carry it to local communities and farms, infecting crops and foods with chemical-resistant fungal strains that have a reported 41% – 88% fatality rate in humans. And imagine the CDC knew about it, but refused to tell you which hospitals were infected. Local hospitals hid the fact that their own hospital rooms and intensive care units were being overrun with this fatal fungi, and that all the world's epidemiological experts had no idea where the pathogen had come from or how to stop it.
But they all kept it a secret, because they didn't want to "alarm" the public. And they sure didn't want hospitals to be seen as hubs of superbug infections.
