The overuse of antibiotics in hospitals and our farms
is causing trouble in fighting bacteria. Doctors have recently detected that we
are at the risk of facing everyday infections, which may no longer get cured
through existing drugs.
India has been victim to the "Superbugs" that killed 58,000 infants last year: A recent study revealed. Experts from the medical field have sent warning signals that antibiotic drugs for newborn babies are no longer able to fight bacterial infections. These infections have a strong resistance to most of the antibiotic drugs. The cause detected is poor sanitation. To get rid of infection, doctors are in a forced state to make antibiotic prescriptions. Since, Indians consume maximum amount of drugs, it helps bacteria emerge new strains. Despite the best efforts of Indian doctors, many Indian babies fail to survive due to acute infection.
Americans have seen a startling quarter of a million die of bacterial infections last year. This has been an alarming number despite doctor's treatment through antibiotics, which the bacteria have survived over. Across 42 states in the US, there have been increasing cases of "nightmare bacteria" which kills nearly half of the patients it infects.
