The WHO defines antimicrobial resistance as a microorganism's resistance to an antimicrobial drug that was once able to treat an infection by that microorganism.<ref name=WHO2014/> A person cannot become resistant to antibiotics. Resistance is a property of the microbe, not the person or other organism infected by the microbe.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
