A simple new test can diagnose pneumonia in just 15 minutes. The Food and Drug Administration approved the first-of-a-kind test that can distinguish between viral and bacterial pneumonia. This will help the doctors choose a treatment. For instance, they can prescribe antibiotics for the bacteria. And they can rule out viral pneumonia, which can't be treated with antibiotics. In the past, the results took so long, doctors prescribed antibiotics just to be safe. But unnecessary use of antibiotics leads other bacteria in the body to develop resistance to the drugs.
