E bug

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has endorsed Public Health England’s e-Bug resource and recommends that all schools use e-Bug to teach children about hygiene, infections and antibiotics.


e-Bug is included in NICE guidance on antimicrobial stewardship and changing behaviour around antibiotics which you can read about here.

e-Bug is a free educational resource for classroom and home use and makes learning about micro-organisms, the spread, prevention and treatment of infection fun and accessible for all students.
