Are Antibiotics Effective in Treating Coronavirus Disease?
There have been a lot of speculations about the possible cure and treatment for COVID-19. One of which is the use of antibiotics. Many patients are hoping that the doctors would prescribe them one. Are they effective, though?
The World Health Organization (WHO) and healthcare professionals clarified that antibiotics CANNOT treat or prevent coronavirus, or any viruses for that matter because this type of medication is designed to tackle only bacteria. With that said, there is no way it would work to treat viral infections. People have to understand that virus is different from bacteria, and so the treatment for each is definitely not the same.
