CORRECTION: New $1 billion fund aims to steer antibiotic companies in a tough market

12 July, 2020

Dear HIFA colleagues,

My thanks to HIFA member Carol Priestley for reporting a typo in my original message. http://www.hifa.org/dgroups-rss/new-1-billion-fund-aims-steer-antibiotic...

I had written:

"700 million people die every year already from AMR, and this is expected to rise to 10 million a year over the next 30 years"

I had meant to write:

"700 *thousand* people die every year already from AMR, and this is expected to rise to 10 million a year over the next 30 years."

Best wishes, Neil
