Sub species but not species? What bout virus? New variant but essentially still the same?
bacteria get drug resistance genes and its part of evolution. May be in a few million years there might be newer sub species of bacteria based on drug resistance.

Viruses- i have not heard of antibiotic resistance in viruses. Also one doesnot treat viral infections with antibiotics, might have to do something with evolution. If they were suceptible,they would also acquitre the gene.
