Question: Is it true that people should not take ibuprofen? I read that ibuprofen enhances coronavirus and is dangerous to take.
Answer: As of late March, the World Health Organization does not recommend those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to avoid taking ibuprofen.
Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to treat headaches, fever, and pain.
According to WHO, there is no evidence that the use of ibuprofen worsens symptoms of COVID-19.
