Countries need to 'step up' their efforts against superbugs

Countries need to 'step up' their efforts against superbugs England’s top doctor has urged governments around the world to “step up” efforts to revitalise the antibiotics market.

Professor Dame Sally Davies, England’s chief medical officer, warned of the looming health threat as a new United Nations report on anti-microbial resistance (AMR) was launched.

It warns that unless urgent action is taken AMR will have devastating consequences, including causing 10 million deaths a year by 2050 and damage to the global economy similar to the 2008-09 financial crisis. The Daily Telegraph
