Warning About Resistant Bacteria

Published torsdag 8 januari 2009 kl 10.53

Writing in the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” Thursday, Swedish medical experts warn that deficiencies in the healthcare system are leading to more bacteria resistant to antibiotics.

The experts, who include the heads of the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control, the National Social Welfare Board, and the specialist medical association representing infectious disease physicians, say the entire healthcare system here is threatened because of errors in the use of antibiotics.

Meanwhile, there are reports that measles in on the increase in Sweden and other parts of Europe. Last year there were 25 cases in this country, compared to just one the year before.

The TT news agency says this reflects increased reluctance among some parents to have their children vaccinated. While 96 percent do get measles shots, those who don’t get them are enough to keep the disease active.
