School children in the UK are to be taught about "superbug" infections and encouraged to use antibiotics carefully, as part of a new campaign.
The e-Bug teaching campaign by the Health Protection Agency is designed, according to Dr Cliodna McNulty, the team lead: "to educate our future generation of adults and parents about the benefits of antibiotics and the problems that can arise through their misuse."
"Children are our future generation of antibiotic users and they will also take these important messages home to their parents."
