Some researchers suggest the anti-inflammatory properties of ibuprofen could "dampen" the body's immune reaction.

"There are numerous studies suggesting that ibuproven use during a respiratory infection may exacerbate the disease or cause other complications," says Prof. Parastou Donyai from the University of Reading.

WHO collects more data on this subject before making a formal recommendation but does not know of published clinical or population-based data on this topic after a rapid literature review,There is insufficient research to tell whether or not ibuprofen exacerbates the symptoms of coronavirus.

But for the safer side it better to avoid ibuprofen with COVID-19 patients based on the risk and benefit assessments.
