The Invisible Enemy
Multi-resistant bacteria are now the greatest threat to modern medicine. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die due to these pathogens – against which many antibiotics are no longer effective. Experts all over the world are concerned.
Many infectious diseases have long been regarded as defeated. But countless antibiotics are now proving ineffective against a growing number of multi-resistant germs. The documentary shows, however, that the manufacturers of the most important drugs are themselves contributing to the development of extremely resistant germs and spreading them globally - so that even their own drugs are no longer effective. The filmmakers went to India, a global producer of pharmaceuticals, to explore claims that practices there are at the heart of the problem. The consequences could affect us all.
