Memes against bacteria: Internet was armed to combat antibiotic resistance

The new unusual initiative of scientists uses funny pictures for a quick and simple way to convey the most important information for people. In the fight against the problem of resistance to antimicrobial drugs (SPMP), which is exacerbated and poses a significant threat to the health of the planet's population, scientists have applied a unique approach, which is to use memes to raise awareness, Csiro writes. In focus, technology appeared its Telegram channel.

Subscribe to not miss the most info and interesting news from the world of science! SPMP, characterized by adaptation of pathogens to antibiotics and other antimicrobials, is a concern due to an increase in the risk associated with common medical procedures and surgery, as well as an increase in mortality from non -treatment infections.

Memmes are used to solve the complex problem of SPMP, which contains a number of causes and consequences, as part of a new initiative, which allow to simplify and effectively convey information about the nuances of the SPMP. These memes are devoted to such issues as the wrong use of antibiotics and the debunking of myths, which contributes to both education and widespread information.

A key factor in the development of SPMP is the improper and excessive use of antimicrobials, which leads to the appearance of medicinal bacteria and other microorganisms. Contrary to popular belief, stability develops in microorganisms, not in humans. Abuse of antimicrobials is not limited to one industry, but is a multifaceted problem concerning both livestock and health, including humans. This situation requires a common approach in various industries, including ecology.

The COVID-19 pandemic complicated the situation even more, distracting attention and resources from SPMP-one of the main global health threats. The task is to determine the priority of such threats that have long -term but less noticeable consequences. The solution to the problem of SPMP is not as simple as the development of new antibiotics, since the development of medicines requires a long time, high costs and uncertainty. This emphasizes the need to preserve existing antimicrobials.

Moreover, environmental aspects, such as the spread of antimicrobial contaminants in aquatic sources, are the most important, but often not taken into account, elements of SPMP. Public participation in the fight against SPMP includes responsible use of antibiotics, observance of hygiene rules, abandoning unnecessary antibiotics and disseminating information about the SPMP.

Mission "Minimization of resistance to antimicrobials", which is implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Social Support of Australia and the Ministry of Rural, Fisheries and Forestry, aimed at conducting research and development to combat the SPMP.

This initiative is aimed at protecting the health of humans and animals, ensuring the safety of food and major industries, as well as maintaining trade and access to markets, which emphasizes the global importance of solving the problem of resistance to antimicrobials. Earlier, focus wrote about the discovery of an antibiotic, against which bacteria have no chance.

As the superbacteria become stronger, the inconspicuous sample of the soil in the hands of science was able to strike them a heavy blow, from which they may not be able to recover. Focus also wrote that scientists found the largest nursery resistant to bacteria antibiotics in hospitals. Having conducted a detailed study of wastewater in medical institutions, scientists have found places that intersect harmful bacteria.
