How many people in the U.S. die of antibiotic-resistant infections? It seems like a simple question. But when a team of journalists from Reuters set out to gather the numbers, they realized that the answer would be anything but straightforward. They found out no one was properly keeping track of how many people die from these “superbugs” every year. On this episode, Deborah Nelson, Ryan McNeill and Yasmeen Abutaleb discuss their reporting process, from death certificate text analysis to interviewing loved ones left behind. EPISODE NOTES:
