Antibiotics crisis could lead to 'millions of deaths'
The pharmaceutical industry has been urged to set up a $2bn (£1.3bn) innovation fund to develop new antibiotics.
The proposals are in a report by a UK government-appointed review team headed by economist Jim O'Neill.
Speaking on the Victoria Derbyshire show, Mr O'Neill said antibiotic resistance could kill 300 million people prematurely in the next 35 years.
He added: "You could end up dying from something as simple as a shaving cut."
