How databases can help control antibiotic-resistant bacteria
Nowadays data are being collected and shared on all kinds of things, such as what cat videos you watch, how many cat videos you post on Facebook, and whether you are a cat. But what about data on which patients are carrying antibiotic-resistant bacteria? After all, antimicrobial resistance made the World Health Organization's (WHO's) list of 10 threats to global health in 2019. Would it be helpful to have a database of patients in a region carrying antibiotic-resistant bacteria, so that healthcare facilities can take the proper precautions when such patients get admitted or transfer facilities?
