Health Matters: avoid ibuprofen for Covid-19

Health matters // Health // By Mark // March 19, 2020

Dr Michelle explains the advice to avoid ibuprofen for COVID-19 symptoms – take paracetamol instead. You can find a list of ibuprofen and paracetamol-based drugs available in Switzerland from the Federal Health Office 

UPDATE: since this was recorded, the World Health Organization says it does not recomend against the use of ibuprofen and is not aware of any negative side effects of the medication - except for the already known issues.
