Study: Drug-resistant bacteria kill 1.2 million globally

Study: Drug-resistant bacteria kill 1.2 million globally

NEW YORK (AP) — “Superbugs” have joined the ranks of the world’s leading infectious disease killers. That’s according to new research that suggests antibiotic-resistant germs caused more than 1.2 million deaths globally in one year. The new estimate was published Thursday in the medical journal Lancet. It is not a complete count of deaths. Instead, the researchers tried to use statistical modeling to fill in gaps from countries that report little or no data on the toll of drug-resistant germs. Antimicrobial resistance happens when germs like bacteria and fungi gain the power to fight off the drugs that were designed to kill them.

Nathan, Maxwell lawyer Bobbi Sternheim said the motion for a new trial had been filed under seal and requested that all submissions related to “Juror No. 50 remain under seal until the Court rules.” The motion for a new trial had been promised by Maxwell’s lawyers, who had raised concerns about media interviews following the verdict in which the juror said he had been sexually abused as a child.

It’s the latest foray into brick-and-mortar for Amazon, which already sells more than 10% of all clothing in the U.S. The Amazon clothing store will be at a mall in Glendale, California. Amazon says its algorithms will give real-time recommendations to shoppers as they scan items. Shoppers can also fill out an online survey of their fit and style preferences.
