idk if its antis specifically its just a treatment ill try find it.

its called ciprofloxacin. thats what they told me
probably use it either as a placebo or to stop any like bacterial infection that could happen coz someone is sick. pre sure they use remdisivr a lot for covid patients as an antiviral drug if u get hospitalised

I can guarantee you we're going back to the lockdowns, the restrictions are happening.
That's going to destroy businesses, and put many out of work, ruin learning for kids, it's not that justifiable yet.

But if hospitals are overstressed, then yeah could be despite perrotet's anti lockdown demeanour.

Remdesivir is a RNA polymerase inhibitor, so it is primarily an antiviral agent, however, after many decades of the conventional wisdom being that antibacterials are of no benefit in treating viral infections, due to slow progress of developing effective viricidal agents, many clinical researchers started to investigate bactericides against viruses and found that some act as protease inhibitors and therefore probably do have antiviral effects. Before COVID19, they were already looking at antibacterials actions on HIV, dengue and other flaviviruses and both beta lactams and fluoroquinolones have displayed antiviral activity. In the absence of readily available drug treatments for SARS-COV-2, they also started studying the effect of antibacterials on COVID patients. As Satvik posts, Remdesivir (and dexamethasone) would be amongst the first line of treatment choices, but if a secondary bacterial infections were also suspected, it’s worth using an antibacterial which potentially also has antiviral activity, thus possibly able to help kill two birds with one stone.
