Antibiotic resistance accelerates exponentially

From Harvard Medical School, this very short but utterly terrifying film that is doing the rounds on social media right now shows exactly how fast antibiotic resistance develops.

Flash forward over 80 years, and Alfie’s knitting skills are allowing him to help his country’s wildlife. Amazingly enough, at 109 years old, Alfie is worried about having idle hands, so he is putting his knitting needles to work and creating the most adorable sweaters for penguins!
