Information[edit | edit source]

Azithromycin is a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat or prevent certain bacterial infections.
~ In-game description

Antibiotics are the only item that can treat an infection. They can be found in almost all lootpiles, such as hospitals, residentials and farm loot, but are considerably rare.

A player has a chance of getting infected when hit by a Zombie, (Though this can be cured using wipes within the first 15 minutes) when drinking un-purified water, when your temperature gets too low or when near an already infected Player who has reached the stage of spreading their infection (Sepsis).

An infected player continuously loses blood at a rate of 3 blood per second. If left untreated, players can die from an infection.
