The antiotic resistance
Although we will generally proceed forward in this course at a steady pace, covering a new disease and topic each week, there are some topics that overlap. For example in week 6 we will discuss nosocomial, or hospital acquired, infections. As we will see then the problem is made much worse by the problem of antibiotic resistance. This cartoon is correct - the best place to find antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria is in hospitals.
