    Untreatable bug kills woman.

    Bug resistant to all antibiotics kills woman

    A superbug that could not be treated with 26 different antibiotics has killed a woman in the US, officials report.

    The 70-year-old from Nevada had returned to the US in August with an infected swelling in her right hip after a long stay in India.

    She died in September.

    Read the whole story from The BBC HERE




    Because this happened in America and the disease originated after a long stay in India we in Britain need to be aware that there are more and more conditions that can no longer be treated by antibiotics.

    We have been warned that there are more and more "superbugs" now appearing all around the world that are untreatable because they have become immune to antibiotics.

    Something needs to be done here.....BUT WHAT ?

    While they keep giving antibiotics to cattle there will be more and more diseases that will become immune to antibiotics.

    Here it is from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibiotic_use_in_livestock

    Thanks for that Zathrus, as this is one of the main reasons why antibiotics that used to work well before have now become virtually useless.
