1. Why can’t a virus be treated with an antibiotic? Seeing as though
antibiotics only work for bacterial infections they would not work to
help fight a virus. Only antiviral medication can do that. A doctor may
also suggest drinking plenty of fluids, take cough medicine to help
suppress a cough, and to get nasal spray such as Flonase.
2. What are two of the most common ways that viruses are
spread? One way germs can be spread is through our hands rather it
be sneezing, coughing or rubbing your eyes its easy for germs to
transfer to other people and ourselves. Another way is from infected
food. For example, if a cook doesn’t wash their hands after using the
bathroom the germs can containment the food and whoever eats it will
be infected.
3. What is the purpose of a “culture and sensitivity” test? A culture
test is used to find germs that caused infections such as bacteria or
fungus. A sensitivity test is used to find what type of medication will
treat a sickness or infection in the best most effective way
