"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.
