Aerobacter aerogenes is a gram-negative bacteria that can cause various infections, including meningitis, pneumonia, bloodstream infections, and surgical site infections.
But that’s not the worst part.
According to recent research, the bacteria is developing antimicrobial resistance — most recently to the class of antibiotics known as carbapenems.
Meaning that soon we might not be able to treat it with antibiotics as we can now.
However, the good news is that the bacteria typically does not affect healthy people. It only causes damage to sick patients who are receiving treatment for other conditions.
So, unless you work in a hospital filled with sick people, chances are you’re out of harm’s way. That being said, prevention is always better than cure.
So instead of finding a cure after someone on your property gets sick due to aerobacter, you should take protective measures to ensure your workplace is safe from it.
Although aerobacter aerogenes is not as deadly as covid-19, that does not mean it’s not a serious threat.
This is especially true given its increasingly becoming more resistant to antibiotics, meaning that it’s possible we will soon no longer be able to treat it using antibiotics.
That is why it is vital for you to take preventative measures to protect yourself and others.
