The Unmet Need
The COVID-19 pandemic teaches important lessons about untreatable infectious diseases
The COVID-19 pandemic reminds us how an untreatable infectious disease can spread quickly, overwhelm health care systems, and result in patient morbidity and mortality that was unthinkable to many.
While there is hope in innovation of new treatment and vaccines, we now understand what it is like to have untreatable infections. Antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) has been a slowly moving pandemic with similar but important differences from COVID-19. The difference is that society has enjoyed the benefits of active antibiotics to treat bacterial infections but is now losing them.
