How many people die every year because of AMR?

Currently, at least 700,000 people die every year due to AMR (WHO, 2019). In Europe that number is estimated at 33,000 annually while the U.S. sees 23,000 deaths attributed to AMR each year (CDC, 2013). This number is predicted to rise and by 2050, could reach 10 million per year if no action is taken (UN IACG, 2019).
