GPs and other doctors have been put on alert for a rare fungal superbug, a global emerging public health threat that has been seen only twice in Australia.

Victorian health authorities say they have detected the state’s first case of the bug, Candida auris, in a 70-year-old man believed to have been colonised in a hospital in the UK.
