At present, there is no clarity in any study, nor experts have been able to reach any specific conclusion about how long the corona epidemic, which has been going on for more than two and a half years, will end. Based on the way mutations have been seen in variants of the corona virus in recent months, experts say that it is possible that more dangerous forms of corona may be seen in the coming days. In view of this risk, all people should continue to take precautions. Even people who have been vaccinated cannot be considered safe from its risks.

There is also no concrete study report about how long the threat of corona will continue, meanwhile scientists have warned that we may have to face epidemics of many more diseases in the coming times. Many studies have been warning about the increasing risk of conditions like obesity, heart disease and diabetes on a global scale.

In a recent research, scientists have made a big claim, warning that if proper use of medicines is not taken care of, then in the coming years people may develop antimicrobial resistance, due to which many types of serious conditions can develop. Doctors have been advised to be careful in this regard. Let us know about this study.

Anti-microbial resistance is increasing in Indians

A recent study by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) found that indiscriminate use of antibiotics in the past few years has led to antimicrobial resistance among Indians. This is a condition in which microbes develop mechanisms by which they escape from the effects of antibiotics. Usually, there can be a risk of getting this type of condition due to the high intake of antibiotics.

ICMR researchers say that in such a situation, many drugs used in the treatment of pneumonia and septicemia in ICU settings will have no effect on the patient.

Infections can be difficult to treat

ICMR said in the study that given the situation being observed, it is feared that a large proportion of patients in India will not be affected by potent antibiotics like carbapenem in the coming years. According to Dr Kamini Walia, Senior Scientist, ICMR, the data analysis has found that antibiotic resistance is developing rapidly in the country as a result of which it may become difficult to treat some infections in the coming days with the available drugs.

What is ICMR’s warning

According to the ICMR report, the drug Imipenem has been used to treat infections caused by E. coli bacteria. The resistance among people against this drug has increased significantly. The rate of resistance which was 14% in the year 2016 has increased to 36% in 2021.

Experts say that the way people have made a habit of taking medicines on their own without a doctor’s prescription, it is the result of that. In such a situation, it is feared that due to the lack of suitable medicines for treatment, there may be an epidemic-like situation regarding many types of infections in the coming years, because the medicines available for the treatment of those infections will not have much effect on the patients.

Increasing obesity is also a big problem

likewise The Lancet Journal In a study published in the journal Obesity, researchers described the problem of growing obesity as serious and considered it a possible cause of a dangerous epidemic. In the study, researchers said that as the problem of obesity is increasing among people globally, due to this the risk of many diseases such as heart disease and diabetes is also much higher than in earlier years. If measures are not taken to control obesity in time, then in the coming years it may become an emerging problem as a big problem, possibly after corona we will be facing obesity epidemic.
