Coughing, sneezing, and gastrointestinal complications that simply won’t go away: where does it end? For many Americans, it continues for a little too long. A recent report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlights the rise of “unusual antibiotic resistance”, in which 221 cases of germs containing antibiotic resistant genes were discovered in the U.S during 2017. While this rise in antibiotic resistance is alarming to all when considering public facilities, these germs do not need to thrive in your business. Keep these nasty germs at bay by ensuring that your facilities are fully sanitized with professional hygiene service.
Scary Statistics for Resistant Germs
The data provided by this report is not only alarming due to the volume of these cases, but also due to the risks that they pose to the public, as over 23,000 Americans die each year from diseases stemming from resistant germs. Even more alarming is the way in which they are transferred from person to person through facilities, as contact with saliva, fecal matter, and mucus on contaminated surfaces can rapidly spread these diseases from person to person. In order to prevent these germs from spreading in an outbreak, the CDC asserts the way in which health departments can work to contain such illnesses with the following protocol:
- Rapid identification
- Infection control assessments
- Colonization screenings
- Coordinate response between facilities
- Continuation of assessments and screenings
The CDC anticipates that this highly effective approach could prevent 1,600 potential cases of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in a single state over a period of three years.
