2020 will go down in history as the year dominated by the COVID-19 virus – but as this exclusive Plant Based News video asks, is there worse to come?

Speaking in the video, PBN‘s Klaus Mitchell says: “What if I told you the next pandemic will likely be 10, even 50 times worse? Not just because the death rate of a future viral pandemic could be much higher than COVID-19, which we know could happen, but because of a separate issue. Antibiotic resistance.”

Antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance is when bacteria that cause infections become resistant to antibiotic drugs, threatening us with the return of early 20th-century healthcare, where infections that we currently view as trivial could become deadly.

Mitchell says: “We’ve all heard of the black death, a 13th-century bacterial disease that killed 60 percent of European citizens and at least 50 million people worldwide.

“This type of disease can easily be treated nowadays using antibiotics, which were introduced in the 1940s. But for how much longer will they be effective?”
