A boy from Minnesota is the seventh person to die from the so-called "superbug."
The boy got it at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Maryland. The Washington Post reports he was being treated for complications from a bone marrow transplant.
Nineteen people at the hospital contracted the antibiotic-resistant strain of KPC. The outbreak stemmed from a single patient.
