Drug resistant infections set to soar

  • Infections that are resistant to drugs will kill an additional 10 million people every year by 2050 if action is not taken, a new report says.

    The deaths are predicted to be more than the number of people currently dying from cancer.

    Superbugs, as they are called, are responsible for an estimated 700,000 deaths a year, currently.

    According to the analysis, drug resistant malaria, E. coli and TB would have the maximum impact worldwide.
