Synopsis: “Antimicrobial resistance could cause 10 million deaths a year by 2050.” Sounds familiar? That is because this prediction has been quoted repeatedly by lay media, experts and public health agencies, since first published in the 2014 report by Lord Jim O’Neill and his team: “Antimicrobial Resistance: Tackling a crisis for the health and wealth of nations”. Frequently, only this specific, frightening conclusion is reproduced from the report, unaccompanied by caveats or confidence intervals. I acknowledge that there is a large clinical and public health burden associated with antimicrobial resistance that this burden is likely to increase over time, and that urgent action is required.
