The rise in antibiotic resistance is reaching worrying levels, experts say.
The Health Protection Agency said while the focus on infections such as MRSA had been largely successful, new trends in other bugs were now posing a threat.
For instance, 12% of bloodstream infections by E. coli in England, Wales and Northern Ireland now show some signs of not responding to drugs.
May God's Blessing be with you all today.
