The United Nations has continuously warned against the misuse of antibiotics. Taking antibiotics when it is unnecessary put us all at risk and speed up antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance is when the effect of antibiotics is repelled by a bacteria causing disease. The bacteria will now SURVIVE, continue to multiply causing more harm to the individual.
Antibiotic resistance is now regarded as one of the global most pressing public health issues. Bacteria that are resistant to antibiotic can spread to family members, co-workers, school mate and may be a threat to community.
It is imperative that before taking antibiotics, always seek for a qualified medical professional advice. Antibiotic resistance may be expensive to treat, thus PREVENTION ALWAYS BETTER THAN CURE.
