Is it any wonder that a superbug is now going rampant across the Country. With the overuse of antibiotics being prescribed at every turn for the slightest things such as the common cold, which it does nothing for.This is coming home to roost and this is the result of that.I have learned that doctors are very good at 2 things: surgery and pushing pills as this is what they are taught to do. Drugs can’t stop this deadly bacteria stalking 42 states.
Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae kills 40 percent of its victims. There is little chance that an effective drug to kill CRE bacteria will be produced in the coming years.
CRE infections already are endemic in several major U.S. population centers, including NY, Los Angeles and Chicago. Smaller pockets of cases have been reported across much of the country, including Oregon, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and South Carolina.
