SUPER-BUGGING OUT

The proliferation of antibiotic-resistant infections is scaring the pros

@jessicawapner

THE DANGERS of antibiotic-resistant bacteria have reached the pediatric ward. According to a new study, the number of hospitalized children in the U.S. infected with a type of bacteria resistant to multiple types of antibiotic drugs surged between 2007 and 2015. The study is the first to confirm the extent in the U.S. of infections with multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria—superbugs, many experts call them—among children and underscores the alarming proliferation of bacterial pathogens our medications no longer treat.

DOCTOR-PROOF: Scores of patients at UCLA’s medical center were told in 2015 they may have been exposed to a superbug during endoscopy procedures that infected seven patients and may have contributed to two deaths.

About Newsweek International

ROUND 'EM UP: TRUMP'S BORDER WAR IS ABOUT TO GET UGLY It was a 2017 moment of great joy, and then fear. Ammi Arevalo found out she was pregnant in early February, not long after President Donald Trump signed two executive orders ramping up enforcement of immigration law and deportations. Her first reaction was happiness, mixed with some low-level financial anxiety, but almost immediately a dark foreboding took over her thoughts. As an undocumented immigrant, Arevalo already dreads an early-morning knock on her door from immigration agents. Arevalo and eleven million like her are at the center of a long running fight that is sparking regular protests and threatening to go nuclear in the early days of the Trump presidency. Leading one side of the war are organizations advocating for undocumented immigrants and even teaching tactics to avoid and sub-vert immigration laws. They want people like Arevalo to live in the U.S. with no real legal distinction between them and American citizens. Leading the other side are the president, many politicians and sheriffs in Texas, and organizations pushing for tighter enforcement and millions of deportations.
