Selected extracts: 

'About 400 000 people accidentally die and 300 000 children become deaf from misuse of antibiotics per year in China. A media report used statistics from the Chinese Red Cross to show that the leading cause of death from antibiotic misuse was unsafe or tainted drug use. The Chinese State Drug Administration has launched National Food Safety month for September to focus on safe drug use.'
