    No room for envy. I wish that their result would end the problem; and I could care less where the solution comes from. Just so you understand that in the US there are slightly less than 200,000 deaths from infections and more than half come from a stay in the hospital. The infection rate in Israel is similar. Same apathetic hospital workers. The antibiotic resistant bacteria are only part of the problem. There will always be pathogens around to cause infections, and most are not antibiotic resistant. There is no good way of decontaminating hospital surfaces but a great way to decontaminate hands. That will solve the problem for all infections.
