      What will happen once penicillin stops being effective?

      We either start using antimicrobials more carefully and rationally, or repeat the fate of penicillin with other antibiotics.

        this.

        though we’ll probably come up with some organo-metalic forms of treatment.

          I’ve heard my CPU is capable of being antibiotics.

          Just don’t tell anybody, they will deconstruct the botnet in event of microbial dissease.

        there is a big push in many countries doing exactly that with antibiotic stewardship programmes.

        >or repeat the fate of penicillin with other antibiotics.

        Unfortunately the fate of penicillin not working where it once did has happened to virtually every other antibiotic in existence also.

        we get a plague pandemic with 30-50% fatality rates

        >plague pandemic

        Even the plague epidemics in the 1800-1900s never reached those figures and this was in an era before penicillin. People know far more about sanitation, hygiene, and infection control now than then so the casualty rates should be far lower even without penicillin.

          an epidemic with even 5% mortality would be apocalyptically bad

            Not really. We’re literal millennia away from being specialized enough for even a 50% reduction in humanity being meaningful from an economic standpoint.

        There are so many antibiotics that are completely worthless now tbh.

      Breed new penincilins by exposing fungus to bacteria and watch them duke it out.

      is using viruses to fight bacteria a popsci meme or actually feasible?

      Methylicin

      Methylated LSD is highest grade antibiotics.

      The real question is why since scrotes have started to deliberately produce anti-biotic resistant strains have we continued to prescribe single antibiotics on an outpatient level, beyond the obvious answer of "not every nation would institute such a policy, so it would ultimately be pointless and only harmful to nations that did so"?
      Why do we not just always use three+ different antibiotics operating under different mechanisms at once? The odds of a bacteria developing immunity to three+ different antibiotics at once should be stupidly low, right?

      Realistically, it will be very bad
