As medical experts, we need to recognise that most of the infectious diseases are no longer limited to a geographical area and their spread is very fast in the modern world, and we have very few weapons to fight against it. Unfortunately, the over-reliance on the use of antibiotics in medicine and veterinary branches to tackle these infections has led to antimicrobial resistance.
