“While the world has spent the last two years laser-focused on the COVID pandemic, another public health threat is still lurking in the shadows: the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been recognized since the early 1900s, yet rigorous research over the past decade has illuminated the magnitude of the threat and its implications for future infection control. More than 35 thousand patients die from antibacterial resistance every year, and antibiotic-resistant infections exceed 2.8 million annually, according to a CDC report released prior to the COVID pandemic.”
Anne Meneghetti is an internal medicine physician and health care executive.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Combating antimicrobial resistance during COVID: What clinicians need to know.”
