Dynamics and Consequences of Antimicrobial Resistance
Antimicrobial resistance is a vital key issue that is leading to millions of deaths every year. Due to antimicrobial resistance, most infections now have become completely untreatable. All microbes usually develop resistance such as fungi develop antifungal resistance, protozoa are developing antiprotozoal resistance, viruses develop antiviral and lastly bacteria developing antibiotic resistance. Bacterial along with the viral antibiotic resistance poses the largest threat to infection prevention in masses, the reason why the use of the antibiotics should only be prescribed when it is most needed and also with a proper prescription by the physician. To prevent this issue of antimicrobial resistance, awareness should be made to use only Narrow-spectrum antibiotics rather than broad-spectrum antibiotics so that targeted effect can be achieved.
