Manx public urged to limit antibiotic use

Tue, 14 Feb 2017

The Manx public is being urged to limit the amount of antibiotics used in order to stop infections becoming resistant to the drugs.

The Department of Health and Social Care is backing a campaign run by Public Health England warning of the dangers of using antibiotics too often.

The Department says people should follow their doctor's advice and not take anti-biotics for illnesses like the common cold.

It's estimated around 5,000 people die in England every year as a result of infections that have become resistant to antibiotics.
