Antibacterial Susceptibility of Pathogenic Bacterial Isolated From Selected Automated Teller Machines within Kaduna Metropolis

Abstract

Pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli; S. dysenteriae; S. typhimurium; P. aeruginosa; K. pneumoniae and S. aureus isolated from the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) located in NNPC/KRPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation/Kaduna Refinery and Petrochemicals Company); ABW (Ahmadu Bello Way); AAW (Ali Akilu Way); SCS (Shopping Complex around Station); KR/ST (Kachia Road/Sabon Tasha); KR (Kano Road Axis) and NAW (Nnamdi Azikiwe Way) within Kaduna Metropolis were subjected to antibacterial susceptibility test using known antibiotics. The result obtained showed that 30 (100%) of the isolated pathogenic bacteria were sensitive to Ciprofloxacin.
