It’s not too late. The problem is novel antibiotic discovery is a needle in a haystack situation. To identify new compounds that are effective and clinically useful requires very large and expensive screening programs. It is beyond the resources of universities and pharma companies are reluctant as they’ll never see a return on investment.

Trying to cure diseases with chemicals is old school and basically relies on mankind beating micro-organisms in an ever-evolving arms race as they develop resistance. The realms of bioengineering is the key to beating these bugs. Viruses that attack bacteria.
