Logan: As far as anyone is concerned, we're just installing A.I technology. No one knows we're eliminating a deadly fungus. Cain: Candida Auris is highly dangerous in immune-compromised patients. Half the patients who get it die. We're lucky it's not airborne like the coronavirus. The staff is not at risk, but the patients could be. The protocol here is to notify state authorities. We need to follow protocol.
