Antibiotic Resistance To Treatments A Growing Threat That Could Mean 'The End Of Modern Medicine'

Image
England’s chief medical officer has warned of a “post-antibiotic apocalypse” as she issued a call to action urging global leaders to address the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.

Professor Dame Sally Davies said that if antibiotics lose their effectiveness it will spell “the end of modern medicine”.

How to prevent the antibiotic apocalypse “We really are facing, if we don’t take action now, a dreadful post-antibiotic apocalypse,” she told the Press Association.“I don’t want to say to my children that I didn’t do my best to protect them and their children.”Health experts have previously warned that resistance to antimicrobial drugs could cause a bigger threat to mankind than cancer.
