"COVID-19: taking anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen, cortisone) can be a factor in exacerbating the infection. If you have a fever, take paracetamol. If you are already taking anti-inflammatory drugs, or if you have doubts, consult a doctor," Veran said.

According to the Le Monde newspaper, taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can lead to serious complications even among young people.

The Guardian, citing doctors, reports that anti-inflammatory drugs pose a risk to people with infectious diseases, as they tend to reduce the response of the body's immune system.
