This sounds like a futuristic science fiction headline. But, this actually happened to a Woman in Nevada, USA. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports the patient was infected with a carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) that was resistant to all available antimicrobial drugs. “It was tested against everything that’s available in the United States and was not effective,” said Dr. Alexander Kallen, a medical officer in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s division of health care quality promotion, while speaking with PBS.
According to the CDC, at least two million people become infected with antibiotic resistant bacteria each year, and at least 23,000 die as a direct result of these infections. The World Health Organization calls antibiotic resistance “one of the biggest threats to global health.” A grim report released last year suggests that if bacteria keep evolving at the current rate, by 2050, superbugs will kill 10 million people a year. While scientists are working to develop new antibiotics, the development takes time; so, experts encourage doctors and the public to focus on prevention efforts.
One of the most important ways to prevent antibiotic resistance is to take antibiotics only when they’re necessary and to bolster your immune system to enable it to fight off infections.
