According to a report from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) there are over 25,000 death in the EU annually that is caused by superbugs. Superbugs is caused by by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics.
There are high levels of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria from humans, animals, and food across Europe, highlighted by "extremely high" multidrug resistance in a type of Salmonella that causes illness in humans.
The summary report is based on data on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria submitted by 28 European Union (EU) member states in 2015 and jointly analyzed by scientists from the ECDC and the EFSA. It provides an overview of resistance in Salmonella isolates from humans, food-producing animals (pigs and calves), and their meat; Campylobacter isolates from humans and pigs; and Escherichia coli isolates from pigs, calves, and their meat. Data on the incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in pigs, calves, and their meat are also included.
The report shows that there were high levels of drug resistance in bacteria like salmonella and E. coli, and that some bacteria have begun to show resistance a type of antibiotics that are often the last treatment option for patients that are infected with superbugs.
The EFSA recommends three key ways to stop the spread of superbugs:
- reducing the use of antimicrobials,
- finding ways to replace the drugs with alternative treatments,
- and rethinking the livestock production system.
