The easy availability of antibiotics has brought a situation where India seemed to be trapped in the throes of antimicrobial resistance, suggest reports.
The frequent use of Antimicrobials has turned these pills into a problem for human health instead of solution.
India first realized the danger of abusing antibiotics in 2008.
The New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase-1 was diagnosed. It was an enzyme that rendered bacteria resistant to a broad spectrum of antibiotics.
Antibiotic resistance spells trouble and can be life-threatening in serious diseases, it can turn many life-saving drugs into useless pills.
It’s been 8-years to detection of the bug NDM1, but the antibiotics are still easily available in the market.
This situation calls for a stringent enforcement of drugs control.
