Utilising a cross-sectional retrospective study, it analyses data from electronic medical records of patients with Respiratory Tract Infections, employing the WHO's AWaRe classification. The study reveals significant changes in antibiotic prescribing patterns during the pandemic, highlighting the urgent need for continued antimicrobial stewardship to ensure responsible antibiotic use and combat AMR.
