Default Public Health Threats (Outbreaks)

Separate thread for max visibility, then Dave can reposition as appropriate.

Anyone with half-a-functioning imagination can see where this problem could be exploited by the Bad People for asymmetrical purposes.

yesterday afternoon, the CDC also released a report about a Nevada woman who died after an infection resistant to 26 antibiotics, which is to say all available antibiotics in the U.S. The woman, who was in her 70s, had been previously hospitalized in India after fracturing her leg, which led to an infection of the bone. There was nothing to treat her infection—not colistin, not other last-line antibiotics. Scientists later tested the bacteria that killed her, and found it was somewhat susceptible to fosfomycin, but that antibiotic is not approved in the U.S. to treat her type of infection

Default We’re not prepared for future Ebola outbreaks, experts warn

From an unheard of website via Twitter, a report that opens with:
