The gene is resistant to colistin, also known as polymyxin E, an antibiotic used as a last-resort treatment for infections. Colistin is currently prohibited for use in livestock in the United States as part of an effort to slow antimicrobial resistance to the antibiotic.
However, the new findings reveal that this mitigation effort may already be a failure as resistance to colistin is already widespread. (Related: Early on, the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was also found in raw sewage.)
"MCR can be spread through global travel and the import of foods from other countries," the researchers said, MCR referring to MCR-9, the gene in question.
"Results of the CFS study prove that the U.S. is no less susceptible to the threat than other nations around the world."
The team went on to reveal that if something is not done immediately to curb this threat, human and animal medicine could become jeopardized beyond the point of return.
"It's a dangerous problem that requires attention from multiple sectors for us to be able to tackle it properly," they said further.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), antimicrobial resistance is "one of the top 10 global public health threats facing humanity."
This latest discovery in Georgia could mean that this public health threat is already much worse than previously believed, having moved from threat to actual nuisance.
"A silent spread of colistin-resistant bacteria is happening in Georgia sewers," Zero Hedge reported. "If people or animals contract it, there are potentially no medications that can treat their infection, leading to possible death."
"Just when you thought things couldn't get any better on the global health landscape, along comes the drug-resistant MCR-9 gene."
It is interesting that all of a sudden this is becoming an alleged issue, right as public fear about the Fauci Flu is reaching two-year lows.
The general public seems to be waking up to the fact that the plandemic was a manufactured psychological operation (psy-op), so it could be the case that this alleged new sewer threat is the latest ploy to create a new bogeyman.
"More bio fear needed. Covid is wearing out," is how one commenter at Zero Hedge put it.
Another pointed out that the United States has spent the last 70 years "weaponizing life, from viruses and microorganisms to animal and human behavior," so this new antibiotic-resistant bug is to be expected.
"Now they wonder why they created super threats," this same person added. "You break it, you own it."
A simple solution, another chimed in, is to supplement with chlorine dioxide (ClO2), also known as MMS – or to dispense a solution of it straight into sewer systems.
"I had elbow bone infection, was swollen badly. Cured it without antibiotics, using MMS and DMSO to penetrate to the bone. Cured in a day," another commenter explained.
"2005 Chinese scientific document as I remember was showing that ClO2 was 5x better in destroying SARS in sewer than usual chlorine pool water treatment. The most potent agent against bacteria and viruses. Forget about antibiotics."
Yet another pointed out jokingly that it must just be "a baffling coincidence" that this new antibiotic-resistant gene happens to have been found in the Atlanta sewer system, Atlanta being the location of the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
