However, her worsening condition and mass protest in her favour compelled government to shift her from Lucknow's King George Medical University (KGMU) hospital to AIIMS, Delhi, but her health seems getting deteriorated day-by-day.

Where, at AIIMS, the victim was supposed to show some positive signs in her medical treatment but as per new reports her blood sample shows some horrifying results. The girl is infected with a bacteria so advanced and deadly that six out of 7 antibiotics have been found ineffective against it.

The blood sample collected at KGMU for her blood culture suggests that the victim is infected with a very deadly bacteria, which is quite rare and is found in feces.

Entericococcus bacteria, a multi drug resistance, which mostly neutralizes antibiotics has been found in the blood culture of the victim during treatment at the trauma center. And now KGMU will send this culture to the AIIMS.

According to KGMU spokesperson Dr. Sandeep Tiwari, the effect of the major antibiotic given to patients admitted to the ICU was tested. Seven antibiotics were tested in drug sensitivity testing in the lab. Six antibiotics were found to be ineffective on the victim.

According to experts, how it reached the blood of the victim is ascertained.

It is to be mentioned that the girl was seriously injured in Rae Bareli road accident and was admitted to the trauma center in Lucknow, where she was treated in the ventilator unit. Later, on August 5, on the instructions of the Supreme Court, the victim was airlifted and shifted to AIIMS Hospital in Delhi.
