If I’m allergic to ZPACK and have coronavirus can I take amoxicillin instead?

Azithromycin in combination with hydroxychloroquine is being studied for potential treatment of COVID-19. If someone is allergic to azithromycin, amoxicillin is not an alternative. In general, antibiotics do not prevent or treat COVID-19.
