University of Minnesota: Study adds more evidence of antibiotic overuse in COVID-19 patients

University of Minnesota: Study adds more evidence of antibiotic overuse in COVID-19 patients. “The findings of the study, which is the largest study to date on antibiotic use in US COVID-19 patients, add to the growing body of research on antibiotic prescribing during the early months of the pandemic. Studies to date have estimated that anywhere from 55% to 98% of hospitalized COVID patients around the world were treated with antibiotics, while only a fraction had a bacterial co-infection that would require their use. This has led to widespread concern about unnecessary antibiotic use during the pandemic.”
