In 2019, CDC released its second Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States and concluded that the nation’s aggressive response to antibiotic resistance has been effective since 2013.
However, the threat continues, and more action is needed. The new report shows that antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi cause more than 2.8 million infections and 35,000 deaths in the United States each year. That means, on average, someone in the United States gets an antibiotic-resistant infection every 11 seconds and every 15 minutes someone dies. When Clostridioides difficile, bacteria associated with antibiotic use, is included, the U.S. toll of all the threats in the report exceeds 3 million infections and 48,000 deaths.
CDC continues to collaborate with partners across the globe to combat these threats through CDC’s AR Solutions Initiative. Together, more action is needed to fully protect people from antibiotic-resistant threats.
