Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the new coronavirus (COVID 19)?

Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the new coronavirus?

No, antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.

The new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) (COVID 19)is a virus and, therefore, antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment.

However, if you are hospitalized for the 2019-nCoV (COVID 19), you may receive antibiotics because bacterial co-infection is possible.
