The main mechanism for virus to replicate is the presence of host (bacteria)
,if antibiotics is taken this will kill bacteria so virus will now don't have host for replication so they will not multiply. so antibiotics are use during viral infection.
Great posting.
Antibiotics work in two different ways either by killing the bacteria
or blocking its function. They only attack the bacterial population
present in the body and causing the disease.
immune system is essential for our health explain?
