Japan records record number of cases of "flesh-eating" bacteria

Media reported that Japan has recorded a record number of infections with flesh-eating bacteria.

"The number of infections with flesh-eating bacteria recorded in Japan in the first half of this year exceeded the number of infections recorded in Japan during the past year," Kyodo reported, citing the Japanese National Institute for Infectious Diseases.

According to the information provided by the agency, “977 infections have been detected in Japan since the beginning of 2024, while the number of infections recorded in Japan last year was 941, and the reason for this increase in infection rates is not yet known.”

Infection with the bacteria Streptococcus pyogenes causes inflammatory symptoms in the body, as the toxins it produces lead to damage to the tissues of many organs, so they are called carnivorous bacteria, and in the elderly, infection may lead to death.
