The rate of consumption of antibiotics is highest in India claims a recent report.

Due to the online sales of medicines, the usage of antibiotics is greater which is purchased without the prescription.

“In India, the use of antibiotics in pre-mixed supplies for the living stock is going up a lot. We are not even aware that antibiotics are going inside our system. The strategy would be to stop the use of antibiotics in the premixed feed,” said Laxminarayan, director, CDDEP.

Citing the solution, the steps to resist the use of antibiotics is by avoiding the online purchase of medicines. Also, doctors should be cautioned while prescribing medications.
