the problem is that is no such thing like an simple antibiotic - 
flemming "discovered" penicilline in 1927 (actualy there is earlier 
research about the effects of penicillium mold on bacterial cultures, 
but lets go with the generally accepted version)

it took then until 1940 (and a major war and lots of funds for 
development) to produce pencilline in useful amounts (sufficient for 
single patients)

i dont think the 5GU or the WGW are at a point where they can afford 
that kind of developmental effort

even the much simpler sulfa drugs are out of their reach for the moment
