COVID-19 Advice for the General Public

No, antibiotics do not work against viruses, but they work on bacteria. 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 COVID-19, you may receive antibiotics because a concurrent bacterial infection is possible whilst having COVID-19. 不,抗生素对病毒无效,但对细菌有效。 COVID-19是一种病毒,因此,不应将抗生素用作预防或治疗手段。然而,如果你因为COVID-19而住院,你可能会接受抗生素治疗,因为同时感染细菌是可能的。
No. Vaccines against certain pneumonias, such as influenza, pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) vaccine, do not provide protection against the new coronavirus. The COVID-19 virus is so new and different that it needs its own vaccine. Researchers are trying to develop a vaccine against COVID-19 at the moment, but may take a while. Although these vaccines are not effective against COVID-19, vaccination against these respiratory illnesses (especially for indicated vulnerable patients) is highly recommended to protect your health as part of routine care based on the individual assessment and evaluation by your healthcare professional. 不。针对某些肺炎的疫苗,如流感、肺炎球菌疫苗和B型流感嗜血杆菌疫苗,并不能对新型冠状病毒提供保护。COVID-19病毒是种全新的病毒,因此它需要自己的疫苗。研究人员目前正试图开发一种针对COVID-19的疫苗,但可能需要一段时间。虽然呼吸道疾病的疫苗对covid19无效,但强烈建议接种这類疫苗(特别是针对指定的易感染患者),以保护您的健康,这是基于您的医疗保健专业人员的个人评估和评估的日常护理的一部分。
