Cause #3: Klebsiella

Klebsiella is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that can be found almost anywhere in nature, such as water, plants, soils, insects, and other animals. It can also be found in human stool and the intestines.

When it gets into other parts of the body, Klebsiella can cause many diseases, such as sepsis, wound infections, meningitis, pneumonia, and UTIs. It is a significant cause of healthcare-associated infection and is increasingly becoming resistant to antibiotics.
