  1. Hi everyone, I have started a blog mini-series on superbugs in an attempt to increase awareness of antimicrobial-resistant pathogens. This week we look at Pseudomonas aeruginosa. url deleted
  2. The increase in hygiene regulations and social distancing will reduce transmission. COVID-19 has resulted in prescribing of antibiotics to patients that present respiratory issues - misuse of antibiotics is a major driver in AMR. In addition, patients colonised with multi-drug resistant organisms are typically treated in isolation, but they are now having to be treated in bays increasing transmission. Yes I'm saying could we be facing a more imminent antimicrobial resistant pandemic due to COVID-19.
  3. The global pandemic has resulted in a number of changes in infectious disease prevention and control measures which may reduce transmission of AMR pathogens. However, do you think that COVID-19 may cause negative impacts on AMR? Could these mean we are facing another pandemic? I wrote a post on the topic this week and would love people's opinions Link deleted
