How Doctors Can Fight Antibiotic Resistance

What is antibiotic resistance?

Antibiotic resistance happens when people use antibiotics and the bacteria is killed while bacteria immune to the antibiotic stay in the system. The resistance of the bacteria travel to other bacteria. This makes the person immune to that antibiotic. Doctors prescribe unnecessary antibiotics causing people to become immune to them. Soon, more and more people will die every year because they are immune to the antibiotics.

How to End Antibiotic Resistance

Doctors, ending the resistance is easier than you think. All you have to do is give patient antibiotics when they are absolutely necessary. Don't give antibiotics for viral infections like a cold or the flu. Limiting antibiotics will help save people from death.
