    Default Anti-inflammatories may aggravate Covid-19, France advises

    French authorities have warned that widely used over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs may worsen the coronavirus.
    The country’s health minister, Olivier Véran, who is a qualified doctor and neurologist, tweeted on Saturday: “The taking of anti-inflammatories [ibuprofen, cortisone … ] could be a factor in aggravating the infection. In case of fever, take paracetamol. If you are already taking anti-inflammatory drugs, ask your doctor’s advice.”
    Health officials point out that anti-inflammatory drugs are known to be a risk for those with infectious illnesses because they tend to diminish the response of the body’s immune system.
    The health ministry added that patients should choose paracetamol – which is known in the US by the generic name acetaminophen and commonly by the brand name Tylenol – because “it will reduce the fever without counterattacking the inflammation”.

    Natural, organic anti-inflammatory foods and supplements are excellent options to "prescription or OTC" anti-inflammatory drugs. For example, all berries, omega-3 fish oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, leafy green veggies, green tea, turmeric (curcumin), resveratrol, and zinc are but a few excellent natural anti-inflammatory nutrients that benefit the immune system, as well as reduce inflammation.
