    From some info from some old-school doctors from the last century, wouldn't it make more sense to treat victims with an intravenous drip of ethyl alcohol instead ineffective antibiotics and carving out the infected parts? It sounds a bit Victorian, but if you raise the patient's blood-alcohol level to 25% (or whatever doesn't kill them) the bacteria isn't going to be too happy-and a hangover is a lot better than losing body parts!
