Antibiotic resistance & us

May 14, 2019

Antibiotics are medicines to prevent and treat bacterial infections such as kidney infections, chest infection, infected wounds and skin infections, amongst other ailments. Antibiotics were first discovered in 1928, by Scottish physician; Alexander Fleming. Since their discovery, they’ve become an essential tool in our fight against disease. Infections and ailments that were previously fatal or severely disabling became easily treatable, revolutionizing the healthcare industry and improving general quality of life worldwide. Before antibiotics became widely available, 90% of children with bacterial meningitis died, while today this figure has dropped significantly to somewhere between 20–30% for newborns, and just 2% for older children.
As well as their bacteria busting powers for fighting infections, antibiotics can be used to boost your immune system during chemotherapy, as well as protecting people and babies in intensive care against potentially dangerous illnesses, making them a truly indispensable treatment!
