Mysterious flesh eating bug that cause gangrenous open wounds spreads in Australia – and doctors have no idea what causes it:

A mysterious flesh-eating virus is spreading throughout Australia – and doctors have no idea where it comes from or what causes it.

The Bairnsdale virus, also known as the buruli ulcer is a gruesome flesh-eating bacteria which devours flesh, fat, tendons, nerves and extreme cases even bone.

The virus has been in Victoria for decades with 45 cases already recorded this year – but it could soon move to New South Wales.
