Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

Hospital bug infecting more patients of working age in Scotland
INFECTIONS with the hospital bug clostridium difficile are rising among patients of working age in Scotland - reversing a previous crackdown. New figures show consecutive increases in the number of people under the age of 65 falling ill with C-diff, [...] "Antibiotics can also cause C-diff infections so additional information on this has been shared with our staff to try to reduce the amount antibiotics prescribed routinely in our hospitals.

New UK food poisoning figures published | Food Standards Agency
There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning a year from known pathogens. This figure would more than double if it included food poisoning cases from unknown pathogens.
Campylobacter was the most common foodborne pathogen, with about 280,000 cases every year. [...] Poultry meat was the food linked to the most cases of food poisoning, with an estimated 244,000 cases every year [... BUT ...] 10 million cases of infectious intestinal disease (IID) a year are not yet attributed to a specific pathogen.

OP gelungen – Patient tot - Reportage & Dokumentation - ARD | Das Erste
Jahr für Jahr infizieren sich rund eine Million Patienten in Deutschland an Krankenhaus-Keimen. Bis zu 40.000 Menschen sterben daran, so die Schätzung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Krankenhaushygiene. Die Gefahr wächst durch neue Keime, gegen die kein Antibiotikum hilft. Der Blick hinter die Kulissen unserer Krankenhäuser zeigt ein erschreckendes Bild: Tagtäglich werden die gesetzlichen Vorschriften missachtet – und alle Beteiligten wissen das. // Krankenhaushygieniker - https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krankenhaushygieniker --- nicht angestellt weil Wirtschaftlicher druck. // Todesurteil durch einfachste infektionen.

Antibiotic-Resistant "Superbugs" in Meat | NutritionFacts.org
So the dire phrasing from head officials may be warranted. There are now infections like carbapenem-resistant enterobacter that are resistant to nearly all antibiotics, even to so-called drugs of last resort. Worryingly, some of these last resort drugs are being used extensively in animal agriculture. [...] it never fails to shock me that the meat industry can get away with something so forcefully and universally condemned by the public health community. What other industrial sector could get away with putting people at such risk? It speaks to the combined might of the livestock industry and the pharmaceutical industry in holding sway over our democratic process, no matter what the human health consequences.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Multiresistente Keime: Weniger MRSA, mehr ESBL - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Resistenzrate bei einem der häufigsten multiresistenten Erreger, dem MRSA (Methicillin-resistenter Staphylococcus aureus), geht laut RKI in Deutschland stetig zurück. Die Resistenzrate bei VRE (Vancomycin-resistente Enterokokken) bleibt seit einigen Jahren mit Schwankungen auf konstantem Niveau, das jedoch über dem europäischen Durchschnitt liegt. Bei anderen Erregern wie den ESBL (Beta-Lactamase produzierende Enterobakterien) gibt es einen leichten, aber stetigen Anstieg.

Superbugs Found Along Britain’s Surf - The Latest News
A proportion of the bacteria found along the U.K. coastline are pathogenic. Of these pathogen some, worryingly, are antibiotic resistant according to a new survey. Researchers have found that some of the Escherichia coli bacteria found floating at the surface of Britain’s coastal waters are resistant to antibiotics. Samples were taken from 97 different costal spots around Wales and England. Of these 97 sites, 15 contained E. coli that was resistant to third-generation cephalosporins, These are a class of antibiotics that are used as antibiotics of last resort, when the other antibiotics cannot be used. Although the actual proportions of antibiotic resistant bacteria was low (less than one tenth of one percent), this is still a dangerous number and poses a risk to people who swim with cuts or to aquatic sports enthusiasts. [...] The growing menace of antibiotic resistance is, arguably, the single biggest threat faced by the world’s population.
