Just what I don’t need

This Mutinus elegans was found sprouted up near the tomato patch. Wikipedia says that in “a study of 32 basidiomycete mushrooms showed that Mutinus elegans was the only species to show antibiotic (both antibacterial and antifungal) activity against all six microorganisms tested, namely, the human pathogenic bacteris Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium and the yeast Candida albicans.

Nothing for viral pneumonia. Rats.
