Remove the name "NEW DELHI". coz we are Indians & we dont like this kind of things. We need To change their name Who Named NDM-1 Superbug as New Delhi.

Please avoid to put the lively place/thing names for superbug because it hurts the people who r living there and also it helps the bad name for the place too;better focus to destroy these kind of bugs and not to focus on the naming like that;so many researchers are good to give the naming,so discuss with them.

No Indian would like such enzyme or superbug to be associated with our Capital of India. The Lead microbiologist who named NDM should be proud to put his name or his country's name.
name of NDM-1 Superbug changed and remove the name "New Delhi" out of the name of the superbug name?
