Bacterial infections, second cause of death in the world

Staphylocoque doré et pneumocoque figure among the bacteria les plus meurtrières. They have total toutes les infections causing almost 8 million deaths.

Tuesday, The Lancet published the results of a vast survey aimed at evaluating the number of deaths attributable to thirty bacteria most commonly associated with infections.

Ainsi, à travers le monde, what are 7.7 million deaths that can be linked to one bacterial infection. A name that corresponds to a décès sur huit quand bien même ces chiffres datent à 2019, in d’autres termes avant la pandemice de Covid-19.

“Second cause of death” in the world

Après les troubles cardiaques, what are those bacterial infections that are plus linked to deaths. Les auteurs de l’étude quote le staphylocoque doré et le pneumocoque parmi les bacteries les plus meurtrières.

C’est dans le cadre du program Global burden of disease, funded by the Bill Gates Foundation, that this study was intended. A program and vast that aggregates the work of several thousand researchers in a large part of countries of the world.

Five bacteria pour 50% of deaths

Thus, parmi la trentaine de bacteria don’t l’impact sur la mortality a été studie, cinq sont relées à plus de la moitie des decés. It is staphylococcal gold, E. coli, pneumococcal, Klebsellia pneumoniae et du bacille pyocyanique.

Le staphylocoque doré is d’après les auteurs “the main bacterial cause of death in 135 payments”.

Une singularité chez les moins de 5 ans

L’étude notes encore that chez les plus petits, c’est-à-dire ceux agês de moins de cinq ans, les infections à pneumocoque se reveillent être les plus mortelles.

The scientific estimates of these results are an additional rationale for affirming constitutive bacterial infections. “urgent priority” of public health. What qu’ils demandent? It is calling for more prevention on this subject, a better use of antibiotics to contourner l’antibiorésistance and a more effective vaccination in large-scale application.
