Estimated minimum number of illnesses and deaths caused by antibiotic resistance: at least 2,049,442 illnesses, 23,000 deaths. Estimated minimum number of illnesses and death due to Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), a unique bacterial infection that, although not significantly resistant to the drugs used to treat it, is directly related to antibiotic use and resistance: at least 250,000 illnesses, 14,000 deaths. Where do infections happen? Antibiotic-resistant infections can happen anywhere. Data show that most happen in the general community; however, most deaths related to antibiotic resistance happen in healthcare settings, such as hospitals and nursing homes. CS239559
