‘Antibiotic apocalypse’: 700,000 people a year die from drug-resistant infections

Posted on October 9, 2017 By newsroom Topic: Healthcare

The Guardian writes about a report by doctors saying that about 700,000 people a year die from drug-resistant infections, and that this global figure is growing relentlessly and could reach 10 million a year by 2050.
