Why is it difficult to take measures against infectious diseases ? (2)

Became a formal agenda at the G7 Summit

Infectious diseases, especially in hospitals, where many antibiotics are used for treatment, also is the place where many resistant bacterias are in presence . In addition, it is undeniable that many people who are admitted to or go to the hospital for treatment are generally weak after surgery, elderly people, infants and other immunocompromised people. And, they are all susceptible to infection. Therefore, since it may be obligatory, there are cases where problems occur even though sufficient specialized personnel are assigned and managed. In medical treatment, the progress of treatment is remarkable, but on the other hand, the technology of evaluation at the same time is also advancing. For example, in hospitals, a technique for identifying the infection route by genetic analysis has been established and the responsibility of the hospital can be identified. Already in Germany, litigation against hospitals, doctors and nurses has become more frequent than before. It will lead to the loss of trust in hospitals and Chancellor Angela Merkel officially for the first time at the G7 summit in Germany's Elmau in 2015 raising the issue as an agenda item. At the subsequent Ise-Shima Summit in Japan, Prime Minister Abe took it up as a formal agenda item. It is an extremely serious issue to be announced and taking the large-scale measures will lead to the distrust of patients and to management.
