Need more laws to deal with antimicrobial resistance
Not just in India, we are seeing across several countries that more and more higher-end antibiotics are being used to treat lower-end infections. In India, particularly, even high-end antibiotics can be purchased without a doctor’s prescription. The problem lies not only with service providers, but also with patients, who seek instant cure for an ailment, instead of letting the treatment take its due course. Besides, in our country, weather specificities—such as being warm and rainy—allow various microbes to grow, which over time, mutate and become resistant to antibiotics. To prevent infections from these ever-mutating microbes, we need to build our immunity as well.
