Frontline: Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria

Fueled by decades of antibiotic overuse, the crisis has deepened as major drug companies, squeezed by Wall Street expectations, have abandoned the development of new antibiotics. “Nightmare bacteria” is how the CDC describes a frightening new threat spreading quickly in hospitals, communities, and across the globe. Without swift action, the miracle age of antibiotics could be coming to an end.
