In this video, Dr. Sunil Gupta, Additional Director, NCDC, will discuss the extent of antimicrobial resistance in India. The antimicrobial resistance is the serious problem in India. There is no specific data available because it depends from area to area and microorganisms concerned. Dr. Sunil will explain the data present currently is from tertiary care hospitals of the country. This data shows a high level of antimicrobial resistance up to 20 – 40 % to commonly used antibiotics like penicillin, quinolones, cephalosporin’s, etc. Community based data might show a little less percentage of antimicrobial resistance.
