The CDC estimates 23,000 people a year in the U.S. die from antibiotic-resistant infections, like MRSA, and other nightmare superbugs. “Hospitals make three and a half times more money if they infect people. That’s why they don’t want to screen.”
Misuse, misinformation, and lack of coordination have put a pin in the golden age of antibiotics; now world governments want to do something, but is it too little too late, and were antibiotics ever the best solution in the first place?
One superbug has finally taken the last evolutionary jump into what could be an incurable existential threat. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which was created due to the overuse of antibiotics, has traditionally been responsible for over two million patient infections per year, killing 23,000 people in U.S. per year. But this could change dramatically
If antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is not tackled, we face profound health and macroeconomic consequences for the world, especially in emerging economies. Find out more on HoneyColony.
