Bacterial illness refers to infections brought about by bacteria. Among the elderly population, bacterial pneumonia stands as a primary contributor to mortality. The combination of improved hygiene, vaccination, and antibiotics has notably diminished the fatality rates associated with bacterial infections. However, the emergence of bacteria resistant to antibiotics has led to a resurgence of certain diseases. Tuberculosis, caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, serves as an example. A number of variations of this bacterium have developed resistance to commonly utilized drugs for treating the infection.
