Superbugs with a high resistance to antibiotics could kill 10 million people worldwide each year by 2050 unless more action is taken, a study has warned. The figure is higher than the global impact of cancer, which currently kills 8.2 million.

The Review into Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), released on Thursday, found the cost of tackling the global health problem could reach a staggering $100 trillion a year.
Antibiotic-resistant bugs are currently responsible, or implicated in, 700,000 deaths every year.

Former Goldman Sachs Economist and leading researcher Jim O’Neill told the BBC: “To put that in context, the annual GDP [gross domestic product] of the UK is about £3 trillion, so this would be the equivalent of around 35 years without the UK contribution to the global economy.”

Prime Minister David Cameron commission the report in July in an attempt to raise global awareness of the growing problem, and instigate more action from world leaders.

O’Neill said the problem would have the greatest impact in counties in the BRIC and MINT blocs (Brazil, Russia, India, China and Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, Turkey respectively). He hoped the report would foster “bold, clear and practical long term solutions.”

The report acknowledges that the human impact and growing number of deaths ought to be enough to spark international action, but says the grim economic forecast “transcends health policy.”

Should the rise of AMR cause death levels to soar, the fall in population would reduce global economic output by between 2 and 3.5 percent.

Modeling of the spread of AMR, by KPMG and RAND Europe, studied three main bacteria: K pneumonia, E coli and Staphylococcus aureus. These were selected from a pool of seven highly resistant bugs flagged up by the World Health Organization.

They also found that HIV, malaria and tuberculosis pose a significant threat to global health if resistant diseases continue to remain unexamined.

The report predicted that in some developing countries, where microbial resistance is already a huge problem, the number of deaths would rise significantly. In India and China, AMR deaths could increase to 2 and 1 million respectively.

The study warned that Africa would “suffer greatly” and in countries such as Nigeria, the rate of AMR deaths could be as high as one in four.

O’Neill said that there was scope to act, and said that with proper support from the international community and coherent global action, the bleak human and economic forecast could be altered.

“With modern technology and the right focus and right guidance, by trying to leverage the world’s greatest technology for diagnostics, it would probably make significant difference to the pressure for use of antibiotics,” he said.

• There is medication that kills almost every bacteria and it was used in ww1 already! It is just not allowed in the EU because the pharma industry can not patent virals and the medication simply consists of virals who eat the bacteria and leave your body after they are gone. The therapy is called bakteriophage!!! Look it up and share the info ;) Question everything!!! Why are you keep deleting my post??

• I'm not for tightening restrictions on peoples movements, but subscriping somebody anti-biotics should put them of watch until the dose is finished. Too many old hags and stuck up noses think they can munch anti-biotics like candy, and finish when they feel like it. PArt of it is the doctor/prescribers fault, but the patients should be put under close watch while taking them to make sure they continue taking them. If anything is to be a criminal offence, stopping anti-biotics early should be for endangering the lives of others.

• Well, I am in China at the moment and the super bug doesn't seem to be affecting the Chinese population any. Women get married and start repopulating at 22, The only super bug the west needs to worry about is the dumb bug.. Seems to be spreading rather quickly throughout the US and GB.

• Ruling circles in the western developed countries, in the US and EU, Australia, New Zealand, Japan do not care about human lives unless it affects their big banks and other major corporations. Otherwise, they consider themselves immune from such threats and think there are too many people, anyhow - that is my guess.
