The country has witnessed sudden rise in H3N2 Influenza or viral infection in last some days which is causing worry among the citizen. Not only this, but India is seeing rise of fresh coronavirus cases too, and active cases have increased to more than 3 thousands now.
In such scenario, 2017 batch IRS officer Dr. Akshar Godhani, who holds a degree in MBBS, seems more interested in health than taxes and is trying to educate people with his social media posts.
Sharing Indian Medical Association’s post regarding ‘Fever cases on rise – Avoid Antibiotics’, he tweeted, “Antibiotic resistance due to misuse/overuse of antibiotics is the looming crisis that threatens global health. Collaborative efforts from all stakeholders including industry, govt, healthcare professionals and public are needed to tackle this menace.”
He pointed out some of the initiatives taken by India and the world.
He wrote, “1. India launched its first National Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (NAP-AMR) in 2017 to provide a comprehensive framework for tackling antimicrobial resistance in the country.”
He further asked questions and tweeted, “However, without public awareness, all such initiatives may not bring the desired result. Because, the kind of indiscriminate usage of antibiotics mushroomed in last decade is alarming and self medication of antibiotics is one of the major issue in present day healthcare setup.”
“Let’s all do our part to stop the spread by avoiding the indiscriminate use of antibiotics.”
