VIDEO: How to help slow the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Transcript: We can help slow the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria with good personal hygiene such as regular hand washing using normal soap and avoiding antibacterial products.

Another way is to follow good food-handling practices such as separating raw meats from other food and storing food at safe temperatures.

Make sure you stay up-to-date with vaccinations.

Doctors and veterinarians prescribe antibiotics to treat bacterial infections. Use antibiotics wisely and only as prescribed. Antibiotics do not treat colds or flus so don’t demand them from your doctor.

We must handle antibiotics with care so they remain effective for as long as possible.
