Killer superbugs attacks India

Antibiotic-resistant NDM-1 is Undermining India’s Medical Sector. The pandemic potential of such a microbe is enormous.

This bug is a killer. When it has entered your body you will die and perish.

NDM-1 infections already turned up in more than 35 countries last year — often in the bodies of medical tourists, who had traveled to India or Pakistan for cheap surgeries and other procedures.  And NDM-1 bacteria have also been found in drinking water and in puddles around New Delhi.

Then, in 2010, a study of a New Delhi-area hospital found that 24 percent of bacterial infections there could resist the last-resort carbapenem antibiotics.

The pandemic potential of such a microbe is enormous.

In India, antibiotic use is virtually unregulated. Antibiotics are widely available without a prescription and, as in the United States, affluent people tend to consume the drugs whether medically necessary or not –

– for everything from colds to diarrhea. Meanwhile, when ill, India’s poor tend to scrape together a few rupees to buy a couple doses of antibiotic at a time, enough to quell their symptoms but not enough to clear their infections.

Both patterns of consumption contribute to the development of drug-resistant bacteria. So, it is no wonder that, even before the new super-resistant strain was first documented, over 50 percent of the bacterial infections that occurred in Indian hospitals were resistant to commonly used antibiotics.

My comment:

Since I have lived in India , I know that the use of antibiotics are out of hands.  In the Indian culture, people go to the doctor with the slightest fewer.

The village doctor want to play “safe”, and give then patient a handful of medicine. Also antibiotics.

It seems to not matter at all if antibiotics is recurred or not. No one will be able to blame the doctor for an untimely death, because an “large amount” of medicine was given.  Indians will says: “The doctor surely did his best”.

An Indian doctor who do not give half a dozen of medicine to a patient, will be replaced. People in India demand and expect a heavy doze.

The Bible explains that pandemics or pests will strike Earth in the last days. Two or three billion people will perish.

 Luke 21:11
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

Revelation 6:8
I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth

The solution is simple. Give your life to your creator God. He came down from Heaven, and payed the atonement for your sins with His own blood.

Jesus the Messiah is the creator, He is alive, and holds the Universe in His hands. Amen.

    1. That is evil, Sean. Think of the incredible suffering for which you are wishing.

      We are NOT overpopulated. There would be plenty for all of the world’s inhabitants if those who horde wealth were willing to share. The entire world population would fit in an area smaller than the state of Texas with each person possessing a small plot of land. What is spent on cosmetics in the West would feed all of the world’s poor. The answer to the world’s problems rests in dealing with sinful mankind. And there is only one answer to sin—that is the Lord Jesus Christ.

      1. Take it easy, it was just a joke. There are already too much people suffering in the world. OH, what if the victims are THOSE suffering people! No more suffering! Ok, ok enough jokes.

        “There would be plenty for all of the world’s inhabitants if those who horde wealth were willing to share.” This is true. However, they are NOT willing to share, so we must look for alternate solutions.

        “The entire world population would fit in an area smaller than the state of Texas with each person possessing a small plot of land.” I would like very much the source of this information, or the mathematical operation that led you to this.

        “What is spent on cosmetics in the West would feed all of the world’s poor.” Ew, cosmetics.

        “The answer to the world’s problems rests in dealing with sinful mankind. And there is only one answer to sin—that is the Lord Jesus Christ.” What do you define as a sin? Also, you believe, and have faith in your Lord Jesus, what about those who don’t? What about those who have other faiths and beliefs? Are they sinners? Are they evil, or just plain ignorant? Can someone be sent to hell just for being ignorant?

      2. there’s approximately 33 verses on ignorance/ignorant…very worth the while to check them out…a wealth of gold nuggets for any who desires answers …

  1. Overpopulation is not the word but a congested place because of money, secondly a corrupt place for mammon.
    Hy gene is not in view where prosperity flows to insignificant some.

  2. Sean,

    This is from an article in the Christian Post:

    “Even the United Nations, historically a rabid advocate of population control, has conceded that the world’s current infrastructure is capable of supporting a worldwide population of more than 9 billion people. Furthermore, according to the most recent estimates, the planet’s population will most likely continue to climb from its current level until 2050, when it will peak at 9 billion; other predictions have the world’s population peaking at 7.5 billion in 2040. In either case, global population levels will begin a sharp decline sometime during the middle of the twenty-first century. Present fertility rates actually indicate a massive underpopulation crisis is coming, particularly among Western nations.”

    I will post the link to the article along with a link to other data in my next post.

  3. Sean,

    You said: “What do you define as a sin? Also, you believe, and have faith in your Lord Jesus, what about those who don’t? What about those who have other faiths and beliefs? Are they sinners? Are they evil, or just plain ignorant? Can someone be sent to hell just for being ignorant?”

    Sin is anything that someone does that is displeasing to God. Based on a reading of Scripture, it is seen that 1) those who have faith in Christ will go immediately to be with Him in Paradise. 2) Those who don’t have faith in Him must wait in a place of torment where they will be punished for their sins. 3) Those who have many sins will face a higher degree of punishment than those who do not. 4) They will then face the Great White Throne Judgment. It is my belief that those who have excellent character (in terms of being just and compassionate) will be granted clemency on the basis of Jesus’ shed Blood. Those who do not, will face annihilation in the Second Death. They are condemned based on their sins. Those who are saved will enter the New Jerusalem (1400 miles high, by 1400 miles wide, by 1400 miles long) on a New Earth in New Heavens where they will live in an Eternity of Perfection with the Father and the Son. This is what Scripture appears to teach.

    We are all deserving of hell because of our sins. Those who have faith in the Savior, receive a “Get out of hell free” card. But the catch is that even though He accepts us as we are, He refuses to leave us wallowing in our sins. Those who truly receive Him in Faith, are transformed by that faith into having the kind of character Jesus had when He walked the earth. If there is no growth toward transformation of character, it is doubtful that there has been a true conversion. Likely some of the hottest places in hell will be reserved for those who say they belong to Jesus but who live a devilish life. There have always been false believers who do the devil’s work here on the earth. As just one example, NOWHERE in the New Testament are believers told to murder others (such as was done to millions of Protestant Christians by the Roman Church). They are frequently even today guilty of ghoulish and death-loving behavior. This website exposes much of the extremely questionable aspects of Catholicism.

    1. “We are all deserving of hell because of our sins. Those who have faith in the Savior, receive a “Get out of hell free” card.”

      Wow, that’s quite unfair, we should get what we deserve, no more, no less. So pretty much Christianity is the easy way out of all the wrong we’ve done? Because that’s the image I get.

      I agree with the rest.

      1. Sean,

        I think you missed the part where we truly repent and make Jesus of Nazareth the Lord of our lives, and the transformation of our character that comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. That is a true conversion and only those who are truly converted receive grace through faith in Him. The Book of James (2:19) tells us that even the demons know who God is but they do not worship or serve Him.

        God tempers His justice with mercy. The Bible says that Jesus was tempted in every way that we are. He knows how difficult it is to avoid sinning in this world—yet He did it. And because He did, we can too, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Man is rebellious because we have been tutored in rebellion by the ultimate rebel—the enemy of our souls. But those who truly repent and turn their lives over to the one who died to save our lives, will live blissfully with Him eternally. The catch is that most whose lives are filled with sin, do not desire to walk humbly with the Lord and miss the grace that could be had. They will die in their sins and be punished accordingly. No one can come to faith unless the Father draws them to His Son. However, the Bible teaches that if we desire to truly walk with Him and wait patiently, He will grant our desire and faith will come to us. It is a matter of bending our will to His.

        There are many remarkable exceptions of great sinners who turn to the Lord and come to know His grace. John Newton comes to mind as such a one. He penned the great hymn, “Amazing Grace” that includes the lines, “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now, I’m found—was blind, but now I see.” After his conversion, he spent the rest of his life worshiping and serving the Lord. His friends marveled over the change in him and many were converted after him.
