No. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, they only work on bacterial infections. COVID-19 is caused by a virus, so antibiotics do not work. Antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment of COVID-19. They should only be used as directed by a physician to treat a bacterial infection. ~ Dr. Fred Mavis, Chief Knowledge Officer, Afya Plan | Ref. WHO.Int , MOH_Kenya
