Antibotic Resistance in Africa: Escheria coli and staphylococcus aureus

Lacy Renea Middlebusher


ABSTRACT:Antimicrobial resistance prevalence is where antimicrobialsdo not work against the pathogens they are supposed to kill.This is becoming a global problem among many infectious diseases killing at least 1.27 million people (about the population of New Hampshire) worldwide and associated withnearly5 million deaths in 2019.These pathogens become untreatable and life threating since the antibioticsrenderedare useless.The primary goal of this review is to give a better understanding and trace upcoming trends on antibiotic resistance and susceptibilitypatterns, we can trace and track information to better understand antibiotic resistance. The information has found the biggest problem to be with methicillin-resistance and an extended spectrum B-lactamase producing pathogens. Progress has been made given the World Health Organization which has stepped in to fight this global problem, including better information and standards concerning antimicrobial resistance. In addition to these conclusions, Africa and global efforts need toestablishmore surveillance to stop overusing and misusing one of our most valuedassets in fighting infections.
