Warning: Do not take this if you have the slightest symptoms of coronavirus

It can be tempting to take painkillers if you are lying down and sick. However, it is not encouraged these days if there is the slightest suspicion that one may be infected with coronavirus.

The World Health Organization WHO has issued a warning to the many people in the world who are affected by coronavirus or who are showing symptoms of it.

In many countries, people often take the pain-killer ibuprofen / ipren.

However, it is important that you do NOT take this medicine if you are infected with a coronavirus or if you show symptoms of it.

A WHO spokesman on Tuesday issued a definite warning against the drug, as it could potentially have a detrimental effect on people infected with coronavirus.

“In the meantime, we recommend taking acetaminophen instead and not self-medicating with ibuprofen. It is important, "the spokesman told AFP at a press conference yesterday in Geneva.

Stick to paracetamol

Most people know paracetamol as the best medication for pain and fierce symptoms.

It is not yet known if the drug Ibuprofen has a harmful effect on people infected with coronavirus. It first came to light when the medical journal The Lancet hypothesized that an enzyme in the drug could worsen the condition of corona patients.

However, it has not been confirmed yet, but WHO would rather be on the safe side, and so they encourage you to leave the drug in the drawer
