They included situations where antibiotics should not routinely be used - such as for upper respiratory tract infections, as topical treatment for surgical wounds and for fever in children without a bacterial infection.

Medics fear resistance to antibiotics is growing, which would mean routine treatments could become increasingly unsafe in the future. Studies include using plant extracts such as essential oils to treat antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, investigating the efficacy of travel sanitisers and examining faster ways of detecting E.coli infections in hospital patients.

The research comes on the back of Public Health England's (PHE) recent 'Keep Antibiotics Working' campaign, aimed at stopping a potential "post-antibiotic apocalypse" caused by too many diseases gaining resistance. In its statement World Health Organization says that healthy animals should only receive antibiotics to prevent disease if it has been diagnosed in other animals in the same flock, herd or fish population.

Stegelmeier said as he and his fellow students participate in Antibiotic Awareness Week, he hopes students will become informed of proper antibiotic use.

"A lack of effective antibiotics is as serious a security threat as a sudden and deadly disease outbreak", says Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO. "We also hope that this will influence them and their spheres of influence for future generations to come".
