Abstract:

Salmonella is a most significant pathogenic bacteria causing typhoid and non-typhoidal Salmonellosis. Contaminated food and water consumption is one of the vital modes of Salmonella transmission cause illness in both human and animals, resulting about 93.8 million causes worldwide annually. Asian and African nations are viewed as the hugest gathering of patients contaminated with waterborne microbial infection. Antibiotic resistance in drinking water sources is of genuine grave concern. The present investigation was aimed at screening of antibiotic resistant Salmonella spp. incident in potable water collected from the some of the slum areas of Bhopal City, M.P. India. Water consumed by the slums when test was reported with higher number of microbial load even at the as low as 10–7 dilution of water samples. The Salmonellas spp. from water was selectively isolated on bismuth sulphide agar media followed by Gram’s staining, microscopy & biochemical characterization. The 10 different isolates of Salmonellas spp. shows a difference in their diversity based on the resistance towards the particular type of antibiotics. The Salmonella isolated from different sample sources showed resistance towards at least 1 antibiotic and maximum 4 antibiotics. 80% of the isolates of Salmonella spp. screened from potable drinking water collected from slum areas were reported to show resistance towards the important antibiotics commonly prescribed by medical practitioners is the serious issue of concern.
