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.
