Don’t Cut Yourself: Your Risks of Deadly, Antibiotic-Resistant Infections are Rising


Zoonoses: Antimicrobial resistance shows no signs of slowing down,
European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), February 26, 2019.


Antibiotic Resistance Rising
“The joint report, which presents the data collected from 28 EU Member States from humans, pigs and calves under one year of age, confirms the rise in antibiotic resistance already identified in previous years.”

“...antimicrobials used to treat diseases that can be transmitted between animals and humans, such as campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis, are becoming less effective.”

Post Antibiotic World Nearer
“...we are entering into a world where more and more common infections become difficult-or even sometimes impossible-to treat.”

Post Antibiotics Era Here
Post Floroquinolones
“...resistance to fluoroquinolones (such as ciprofloxacin) is so high in Campylobacter bacteria in some countries that these antimicrobials no longer work for the treatment of severe campylobacteriosis cases.”

Salmonella Becoming Resistant
“Most countries reported that Salmonella in humans is increasingly resistant to fluoroquinolones. Multidrug resistance (resistance to three or more antimicrobials) is high in Salmonella found in humans (28.3%) and animals.”

“In Campylobacter, high to extremely high proportions of bacteria were found to be resistant to ciprofloxacin and tetracyclines.”

Last Multi-Drug Defenses Standing
“...combined resistance to critically important antimicrobials was very low to low in Salmonella and Campylobacter from humans and animals and in indicator E. coli from animals.”

Last Stand for Antibiotics Coming

"Now is the time to turn the tide on antimicrobial resistance if we want to keep antibiotics working."
