    "It's all hands on deck, 24/7, for Ebola," one prominent federal health official told me during the hysteria, but "we're ignoring antibiotic resistance."
    Yet, each year, more than 5 million people in the U.S. and Europe become infected with serious, resistant bacterial infections across the globe, with at least 48,000 of those people dying as a direct result of these infections, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Globally, the bacteria responsible are growing increasingly resistant to these treatments. And more than 2 million children, mostly in the undeveloped world, die each year of bacterial pneumonia alone. :eek: :shocked: :zoned:
