Medical News / From ECCMID 2022 - COVID-19 Pandemic May Have Accelerated Antimicrobial Resistance

One study, presented at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), examined how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Increased use of antibiotics during the pandemic reportedly caused AMR secondary infections, so investigators sought to verify or disprove the theory that AMR increased with the outbreak of COVID-19.
