My 40+ years of experience in explaining to patients what the medicine is for has led me to explain it in these terms, If I say "Anitviral" they say "what's that?" And I tell them it is an antibiotic that works on viruses. Yes, it is not actually right, but the goal is to get the patient to understand.

Remember the original post was in response to someone who said that COVID-19 was no worse than the flu.I pointed out that the flu was treatable while COvid-19 (as yet) was not.
