How to protect yourself from the deadly, drug-resistant fungus, Candida auris

A deadly, drug-resistant fungus is growing in strength. The CDC calls Candida auris a “serious global health threat.” In Thursday’s New York Times, Matt Richtel reports on a Chicago woman who died from the fungus and also uncovers two cases in New York that are pan-resistant, meaning they cannot be cured. Nearly 600 cases have been reported in the U.S. Richtel joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the fungus.
