Sounds like we are creating the "perfect storm" for an infectious
epidemic involving antibiotic resistant bugs.
It is often the patients who demand antibiotics, after taking the time to
explain the difference between a virus and a bacteria they say, "That's
all fine, but how can I get better without a pill?" Doctors often receive
bad ratings for practicing good medicine by refusing antibiotics: "I
don't know why I wasted the time and money to see a doctor, they
didn't do anything."
