You might have received a WhatsApp message or two telling you not to take ibuprofen if you have the coronavirus.

Some of these messages warn that doing this has led to several critical cases of coronavirus, especially in youth people.

Speaking to the BBC, medical professionals said that ibuprofen is not recommended for managing coronavirus symptoms.

The NHS says that, while “there is currently no strong evidence that ibuprofen can make coronavirus (Covid-19) worse, until we have more information take paracetamol to treat the symptoms of coronavirus, unless your doctor has told you paracetamol is not suitable for you”.
