    A newly developed liquid in conjunction with bacteria-killing gas will use viruses to help break down the resistance of antibiotic resistant bacteria, rendering them vulnerable to conventional cleaning products.
    The liquid will take advantage of virus infecting bacteria called bacteriophages. The bacteriophages have been engineered to restore a gene in the bacteria that they have lost in the process of becoming resistant.
    The liquid should cost only a few dollars per liter.
