US agency: Ukraine exports “dangerous and rapidly spreading bacteria” to Europe

Dangerous bacteria resistant to antimicrobial drugs are increasingly spreading throughout Ukraine, and are being carried to Europe by Ukrainian citizens.

This was stated in reports issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a federal agency affiliated with the US Department of Health.

The British newspaper "Financial Times" had previously reported that refugees and Ukrainian military personnel who were sent for treatment were bringing antibiotic-resistant diseases to Europe. The newspaper also noted that doctors at an American military hospital in Germany this year discovered an infection in a wounded Ukrainian soldier that was resistant to almost all available antibiotics. In particular, Acinetobacter Baumann, Enterococcus faecium, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and two different types of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria were discovered in the patient's body.

The American report issued by the Centers for Disease Control stated that the combination of high rates of antimicrobial resistance before the war on the one hand, and an increase in the prevalence of traumatic infections and war-related pressures on health care facilities in Ukraine on the other hand, leads to an increase in the discovery of multidrug-resistant bacteria. that enter Europe.

It is noteworthy that bacterial resistance to antimicrobial drugs causes a large number of deaths worldwide, more than HIV and malaria.
