A pathogen can not rise in human or in organism or else it would be inherited as we have mitochondria. S. marcescens is associated to urinary tract infection. If we have have look at the growing conditions of the bacterium it is able to survive in temperature ranging between 5 to 40 degree Celsius with pH ranging between 5-9. This might be a reason for this being a prime reason to favor survival in multiple conditions.

I am also looking forward for further discussions over this 🙂
