Doctors are warning that the rise of an almost untreatable superbug, immune to some of the last-line antibiotics available to hospitals, poses a grave threat and needs urgent government action.
We should be "terrified" that prescriptions of colistin are rising steeply, say experts, as it's evidence of an increase in the most dangerous types of superbugs.
Superbugs are now killing more patients than breast cancer and at least twice as many people as the government estimate, experts have warned.
