Colds and flu
Colds are caused by more than 200 different viruses, so it’s no wonder we seem to get them so often! The flu, on the other hand, is caused by different strains of a single virus called influenza.
Got a cold or the flu? Antibiotics are not the answer!
Each November, World Antibiotic Awareness Week aims to increase global awareness about the proper use of antibiotics. This is an important initiative because misuse of antibiotics is leading to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Given that November is prime season for respiratory infections, you can do your part by learning to identify situations where antibiotics are not the answer.
