Resistance Fighters - The Global Antibiotics Crisis

October 201999 minutes

Each year, 700 000 people worldwide are killed by multi-resistant bacteria – microbes which cannot be wiped out by any antibiotic. According to a recent study, this death toll could rise by factor ten until the year 2050: without powerful agents up to 10 million people could die each year due to such superbugs.
