Antibiotic Resistance

“Antibiotics resistance is one of the biggest challenges humans have ever faced. If it is left unchecked, it could return modern medicine to the dark ages.”

Antibiotics are no longer effective. These drugs had transformed life and saved countless millions since penicillin was discovered by Sir Alexander Fleming in 1928. But what we have done with it? We have overexploited the wonder cure by irresponsibly consuming it ourselves, by feeding it to animals, spraying them on crops and dumping them in rivers. As a result, an invisible army of super-resistant bacteria has evolved, one that is increasingly claiming lives. Many leading global agencies like the WHO and the UN are calling it a global catastrophe, one that is as big a threat as global warming and terrorism. Infections such as tuberculosis and septicaemia, that were a cause of concern in the early 20th century, are once again killing us at frightening rates. There is nothing left in the antibiotic armoury and the development of new drugs isn’t keeping pace with the speed of resistance. Humanity is heading towards a post-antibiotic era and we stand to lose all advancements we have made in the modern medicine over the past century.
