With news of bacteria becoming more resistant to antibiotics, the field of medical practice may have wanted other related problems to spring up.

Well, now we have antiretroviral-resistant HIV!

University College London found that while only 20% of European patients were not responding to the drug in question - tenofovir disoproxil - 60% of African patients were not helped by the drug.

Great! So now we have tenofovir-resistant HIV spreading! What else can be going so well for the field of medicine at the moment?

It could always be worse. An ancient bacteria could be unearthed as the ice caps melt and kill us all.
