As featured in SAIFinsight’s December issue, SAIF has published a briefing note on Superbugs for funeral directors.  The World Health Organisation (WHO) regards antibiotic resistance as the biggest threat to global health over the coming years. Some predictions see more people dying from superbugs than cancer by 2050.  germ-41366_1280
