Could superbugs become deadlier than cancer?
May 19, 2016
Drug-resistant infections kill hundreds of thousands of people every year.
That number could soar to as many as 10 million a year by 2050 unless the world acts now.
That is the warning from British researchers about drug-resistant bacteria.
For the first time, the researchers have set out what needs to be done to tackle the rise of so-called superbugs.
Overuse of antibiotics is raising the prospect of a future where routine operations will become too dangerous for doctors to perform. And a simple infection could leave you fighting for your life.
How have we got to the point where infections could become untreatable? And what needs to be done to reverse the trend?
