There is a rise in bacteria strains that are resistant to antibiotics. The emerging bacteria are likely caused by the overuse antibiotic drugs for relatively simple health issues like the common cold. Mutations of bacteria that are resistant thrive while common bacteria succumb to traditional drug treatments. MRSA is the best known example of a antibiotic-resistant bacteria, but others are emerging. UVAIRx technology is equally effective at killing common bacteria along with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
