Scientists and researchers have released a new mind-blowing update, about deadly superbugs that is far worse than COVID 19 and can claim the lives of over 10 million people every year and about 350 million by 2050.
According to reports from top scientists, the superbug is as a result of the over-reliance of humans on antibiotics, which are on the brink of failing because they have become resistant.
It’s is referred to as the biggest human health threat, bar none” by scientists as normal routines like shaving, childbirth, small scratches and basic medical operations like hip replacements will become life-threatening as medicine will no longer work and humans will be unable to fight off any infection.
Australia’s biosecurity research director, Paul De Barro, while giving a report on the plague said;
If you thought COVID was bad, you don’t want anti-microbial resistance,”
I don’t think I’m exaggerating to say it’s the biggest human health threat, bar none. COVID is not anywhere near the potential impact of AMR.
We would go back into the dark ages of health.
Simple things like scratches could kill you, childbirth could kill you, cancer treatment, major surgeries, diabetes, in the background in all of these, is often the use of antibiotics.
You will end up with massive pressure on the health system – exactly the sort of things you are seeing with COVID. Think about intensive care units, hospital stays, access to medical treatment outside of the hospital system, the use of antibiotics in nursing, in treating pneumonia, all of these come into play.”
According to facts from the World Health Organization (WHO), the resistance to antibiotics will cause at least 350 million deaths by 2050, as it is already to blame for least 700,000 deaths globally a year which might be a massive underestimate.
The figure is expected to reach 10m deaths annually without adequate intervention, as humans already over-rely in antibiotics and hospital staff are under strict guidelines to avoid unnecessarily prescribing drugs.
Chief England Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said;
Without effective antibiotics, would you opt for routine surgery, such as hip replacement, if the risk of dying from infection was unreasonably high or would you soldier on with your dodgy hip?
Would you opt for cancer treatment in a world without antibiotics or would you decline treatment and focus instead on ticking some things off your ‘bucket list’?
If antibiotics fail we could see a time where we all think twice about doing something as simple as gardening or shaving in case we cut ourselves, and the cut gets infected. Modern medicine simply would not be able to continue.”
Researchers also warn that the mass use of hand sanitizers could lead to an “armageddon situation” as unstoppable superbugs adapt to survive it.
