'Some food & water being consumed in Zim contains antibiotics which may cause difficulty in treating infections': WHO
Speaking at at the launch of the Zimbabwe Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) national action plan and the AMR Situation Analysis Report, World Health Organisation (WHO) representative in Zimbabwe, David Okello said some food and water being consumed in the country contains antibiotics that may lead to the development of antimicrobial resistance.
Antimicrobial resistance happens when bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi develop resistance against medicines that were previously able to kill them. Said Okello:
Already, massive use of antibiotics by food industries combined with irrational and unprescribed dispensing is largely fuelling the development of antimicrobial resistance. The food that we take and some of the water we buy may contain certain portions of antibiotics, which may cause resistance in the near future.Feedback
