About Superbug Tour
About the website
This site www.superbugtour.eu has been put together by The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC) as part of a campaign launched together with member organisations from 13 countries. It aims to raise consumers’ awareness on antibiotic resistance from farm animals by showing the journey of a superbug across the participating members’ countries.
Data displayed on the map were sourced from:
- the ECDC/EFSA/EMA second joint report on the integrated analysis of the consumption of antimicrobial agents and occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria from humans and food-producing animals, pg.31, July 2017.
- The Sixth ESVAC report, Sales of veterinary antimicrobial agents in 29 European countries in 2014.
