The video, published by the World Health Organization in Egypt on its official Twitter account, advised not to go to a pharmacy antibiotic without consulting a doctor, even if it was to treat the role of a cold or flu.
He explained that diseases can be caused by bacteria or viruses, and the antibiotic is only used to treat bacteria, and most cold and flu roles occur because of viral infections and therefore the antibiotics will not work with them.
"The high frequency of random use of antibiotics is not effective and robs you of the chances of recovery.
