DEMONSTRATED (comes from OMS): CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19) is caused by a virus, NOT by bacteria.
The virus that causes COVID-19 belongs to a family of viruses called Coronaviridae. Antibiotics do not work against viruses.
Some people who become ill with COVID-19 can also develop a bacterial infection as a complication. In this case, a healthcare provider may recommend antibiotics.
There is currently no medicine authorized to cure COVID-19. If you have symptoms, call your healthcare provider or the COVID-19 hotline for help.
