U.S. Antimicrobial Resistance Map

…from Science News

“Drug-resistant infections kill tens of thousands of people in the United States each year. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) alone infects more than 94,000 people and kills nearly 19,000 Americans every year, more deaths than caused by emphysema, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, and homicide. A new interactive map on IDSA’s website describes in detail the local impact of these and other resistant infections across the nation with detailed U.S. state-specific information. The map is available at http://www.idsociety.org/antimicrobialresistanceinUSA.htm.”
