    ‘the manufacturer has come out and said.......

    "I do think that the results are potentially interesting, and warrant further investigation with respect to both efficacy and underlying mechanism of these drugs as potential COVID-19 treatment," he says.

    but in trials it did nothing as one is virus and the other a parasite.... in petrie dish many things look wonderful at killing something.... in a body not so


    But Elon tweeted to 32 million followers we found the candidate because of some older google article.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that people with COVID-19 symptoms avoid taking ibuprofen, after concerns were raised by French officials that it may make the virus more harmful.

    A recent study in The Lancet medical journal, theorizing that an enzyme boosted by ibuprofen could enable and exacerbate COVID-19 infections, led France's Health Minister Olivier Veran to suggest via social media that the medicine be avoided.

    Questioned on the study by reporters in Geneva, WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier said that experts were "looking into this to give further guidance."

    "In the meantime, we recommend using rather paracetamol, and do not use ibuprofen as a self-medication. That's important," he said.

    Ibuprofen is sold under a number of brand names, including Nurofen and Advil.

    Sounds like typical inconsequential bureaucratic consensus

    A real crisis like this exposes these people as pretenders

    You want people that know what to do, not a bunch of political appointees that shuffle chairs on the deck of the Titanic

    This is about as helpful as Taboola offering me to click on a tile saying I won’t believe Bill Cosby’s net worth or Susan Boyle’s weight loss.
