THE use of antibiotics medicines in our society has been rapidly increasing with the passage of time.
According to a survey, in the last 15 years from 2000 to 2015 the use of these antibiotics has increased by 65 per cent.
The antibiotics are especially given to children without knowing the side effects, for antibiotics give quick relief to the patient.
At present, Pakistan is at third number in Asia after India and China where antibiotics are used so widely. A large number of people die every year because of the use of antibiotics.
The authorities concerned should take this matter seriously and take measures to minimise the use of antibiotics.
