    Default CDC: Antibiotic resistance causes 1 death every 15 minutes in US

    Redfield & Babcock
    November 13, 2019

    According to newly updated estimates published by the CDC, more than 2.8 million infections are caused by antibiotic-resistant pathogens annually in the United Sates, resulting in at least 35,000 deaths.
    That is one infection every 11 seconds and one death every 15 minutes.
    “We must remain vigilant,” CDC director Robert R. Redfield, MD, said during a news conference. “Antibiotic resistance threatens both our nation’s health and our global security, and that’s why we all play an important role in stopping it."

    I have a crazy theory. I believe the growing antibiotic resistance explains, in part, the immense pressure by the global medical community for the use of vaccines. Once you remove the profit motive from vaccines, what else can explain the extreme, increasingly obvious pressure to vaccinate. I theorize that the medical community knows we're losing the fight against antibiotic resistant pathogens. And, vaccines emerge, in part, as the fix. Based on my reading, microorganisms do not "generally" develop resistance to vaccines (think polio, tetanus, smallpox, etc.). And, vaccines prevent both bacterial and viral infections, while antibiotics only work against bacteria. So, as vaccines increase, the need for antibiotics will decrease. Perhaps, this helps to explain the extreme push toward vaccines. The medical community is fearful of a future of greatly diminished antibiotics, and view vaccines as a way to fill that void.

    May I add another leg to make yours a 2-legged theory? Because I think it's plausible that the most recent Blogspot entry, "Partnering for a path to digital identity," is a worldwide, multi-corporate effort to digitize the entire global population. Mandatory vaccines would facilitate the attempt to simultaneously "chip" us, and fear-mongering for preventable diseases increases the urgency for vaccination. The failure of antibiotics happens to be a convenient accident.

    Actually, I think your theory is more plausible than my own.
