how do you die of infection in 2018?

Socialized medicine. She probably has to wait in line next to Abdul with a bad case of lice and the black plague.

If the infection gets bad enough it can go into sepsis. Since the skin has been radically compromised by the acid even a steady flow of anti-biotics may not be enough to keep up.

I noticed a lot of doctors nowadays kind of give up after 1-2 half-assed attempts at treating something. Like "The tests show it's not working. I guess it's a very severe infection." at which point they kind of coast until the patient dies or recovers just enough "on paper" to be sent home.

Good question.
