    because some idiotic retard decided that antibiotics do not work on viruses and now we all will have to die. they  DO work by helping your body to fight by killing unnecessary bacteria that your body has strength to fight with virus. my husband had a virus pneumonia many years ago. all our family had it - it started exactly like coronavirus with just strong cough and high fever out of nowhere. we all recovered in a few days but my husband got pneumonia and had antibiotics for that and he recovered after that in a week. after his tests came it occurred he had a virus, not bacteria pneumonia but still antibiotics helped

    Corona virus is not "near the same as" pneumonia.  It creates pneumonia and that is what people actually die form (the complication of corona virus).

    The issue is that there is viral pneumonia and bacteria pneumonia.  Most severe cases on covid-19 result in viral pneumonia which is not responsive to antibiotics.

    Because those medicines don't help with viruses. They only work on bacterial infections.

    Those are antibiotics. They attack bacteria cells. They are useless against a virus.

      And you also asked why pneumonia patients with COVID-19 weren't getting anti-bacterial drugs. Those drugs won't do anything to treat pneumonia. They will only treat what caused the pneumonia in the first place and again, there is no treatment yet for this virus.

    Chemicals that break open bacterial cells are great for stopping bacterial infections, but they don't do anything against a virus.
