WOODBURY - A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals that more and more bacteria are becoming resistant to drugs.
The CDC says that more than 2 million people develop a serious drug-resistant infection each year. At least 23,000 die from the infections.
The report lists 17 specific drug-resistant bacteria that federal medical experts are the most worried about.
Infectious disease specialist Dr. Bruce Hirsch says the bottom line is that both doctors and patients need to understand the proper use of antibiotics.
