In our modern world, despite having many technological advancements in both pharmaceutics and medicine, our modern-day scientists still have not completely eliminated our bodies from developing infections from different infectious agents, namely bacteria, virus, protozoa, and fungi. Although we have highly effective medicines to help treat any infection that we develop, we still cannot remove the fact that we are not free from getting any infections. Even so, this can still be considered a blessing when you compare it to the olden times when people did not have any idea as to what is causing their diseases along with what to take in order to treat their infections.
These days, even though we have not completely freed ourselves from our body’s susceptibility to infection, we are still very fortunate that we have highly effective medicines that can help treat even the nastiest infections.
