CDC released a report this week about antibiotic resistance. They found that more than 2 million people in the US get sick every year from germs that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die from these infections. The report also found that up to half of antibiotic use in people is unnecessary or inappropriate. Check out CDC’s website to understand how antibiotic resistance happens and how antibiotic resistance can spread. The report also gives easy-to-understand information on some important antibiotic resistant or antibiotic related germs like Clostridium difficile and Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (or CRE).
