On April 12, 2014 a report issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) described the alarming situation of the antimicrobial resistance that threatens the achievements of modern medicine globally. Antibiotic overuse contributed to the appearance of strains of resistant microbes, causing common infections and minor injuries, which were successfully treated for decades, to re-emerge as lethal diseases. Resistant microbes can easily spread in social settings causing outbreaks of infection in schools, hospitals, workplaces, etc that are difficult to treat and onerous on the public health system.
