We're winning
Considering there are upwards of a 100 trillion bugs, i think we lost a long time ago

Actually if the bacteria were left alone without intervention they would NOT be resistant. Resistance is only developed once bacteria are constantly bombarded with retardants or chemicals. Its simple Darwinian survival.

An over-sanitation of water(which is the usual case in cities like New Delhi) is the most probable cause.

Bacteria are also 100% responsible for our survival. There are more bacterial cells inside your body than human cells. By numbers alone you are more bacteria than human. These bacteria provide ciritical digestive functions.

Bacteria are also responsible for plants' ability to absorb nitrogen. Plants cannot absorb nitrogen from the air. Symbiotic bacteria in their roots absorb it for them. We would have no crops, none whatsoever, if it was not for bacteria.

I get annoyed when people act like we are at war with bacteria. Most bacteria are actually good.

Not true at all. Bacteria have been resistant to beta-lactam drugs for a long time. It's an antibiotic produced by fungus that bacteria have been evolving against before human ever existed.

New Delhi over-sanitizing its water? Are you nuts? Have you seen the water conditions in India?

After that I suggest other areas with incredibly high population densities such as Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa. We can thin North America, Europe and the Middle East when time permits. Australia can do it's own thing.
I say we should start with you... or maybe your family and friends?
