Antibiotic Resistance is when the medication or drug loses its ability to kill bacteria in the body. It is considered as one of the most severe threats to global health in the present time because it can affect anyone regardless of age or country.
Antibiotics are medications that are used to prevent and cure infections acquired from bacteria. It also causes several infections such as pneumonia, gonorrhea, and tuberculosis, which makes it more difficult to cure. The medication, antibiotic, that was once enough to treat them has now become less effective. However, if the medications fail to fight back and protect the body from the bacteria that causes the infection, it becomes harder for it to treat since the antibiotic is less effective.
This kind of condition may even happen when the bacteria start to change their response to the function of the medicines. Such a happening might cause higher medical expenses, extended hospitalizations, and increased mortality.
