Update information

23 April 2020: We amended recommendation 4.8 to clarify that the doxycycline treatment course is 5 days in total, and that doxycycline is the first-choice antibiotic for bacterial pneumonia during the COVID-19 pandemic because it offers broader-spectrum cover than amoxicillin.

Minor changes since publication

26 May 2020: We updated the list of symptoms in recommendation 1.1 to include loss of smell or taste in line with current government advice.

4 May 2020: We removed the cross-reference to the NICE guideline on pneumonia in adults from recommendation 3.5 because the recommendations in that guideline do not apply during the COVID-19 pandemic.
