Aquatic matrices impacted by sewage may shelter carbapenem-resistant (CR) Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) harboring resistance genes of public health concern. In this study, sewage treatment plants (STPs) servicing well-defined catchment areas were surveyed for the presence of CR-GNB bearing carbapenemase genes (blaKPC or blaNDM).
Moving beyond hospital settings, sewage, and STPs, our findings evince that clinically relevant blaKPC-or-NDM strains scape into the environment. Therefore, aquatic matrices should be subjected to surveillance as one health measure against antibiotic resistance.
