The World Health Organization (WHO) has cautioned against the usage of popular drug ibuprofen without consulting a doctor.
WHO representative, Christian Lindmeier, gave the warning at a news conference in Geneva on Tuesday.
Lindmeier said the agency has no recent studies that link the anti-inflammatory drug with increased death rates.
He, however, included that experts are as of now investigating the issue.
“We recommend paracetamol, not ibuprofen in self-medication,” Lindmeier said.
Lindmeier likewise affirmed that two WHO staff members have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 respiratory malady.
Coronavirus since its outbreak in Wuhan, China has claimed 6,000 lives and affected around 150 nations, including 27 for Africa.
