TREATMENT of even the most minor infections could soon become impossible as the dawn of a “post-antibiotic world” approaches, according to one chilling warning.

Madagascar has been plunged into crisis after an outbreak of the Black Death plague claimed more than 170 lives across the east African nation so far.

The lethal airborne disease is capable of killing victims within 24 hours – with one doctor even claiming death can occur in as little as three hours – causing concern among World Health Organisation officials.

It has been labelled the worst outbreak of the deadly virus “in more than 50 years” – but there are fears it could worsen if the disease mutates and becomes untreatable.

Antibiotic treatment of the Black Death – also known as pneumonic plague – is currently effective in fighting the disease in its early stages, helping to save thousands of lives.

But as modern medicine struggles to stay ahead of continuing viral mutations, there is an increased risk of future outbreaks of the disease becoming increasingly difficult to treat.

The worrying trend has been labelled the beginning of a “post-antibiotic world” by one virus expert.

“Those in their 80s are still young enough to remember a time before antibiotics were generally available and they can remember a time when trivial infection could result in death,” Dr Derek Gatherer explained to Daily Star Online.

“One interesting example is back in 1942 during the war, Howard Florey – a famous pharmacologist – was charged with developing Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin and turning it into something which could be produced in large doses to send out to the allied troops.
