Transmission and Treatment
The COVID-19 infection is transmitted by people carrying the virus. The disease can be spread from person to person through respiratory droplets expelled from the nose or mouth when a person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can persist for some time on objects or surfaces around the person in question. An infection with COVID-19 can occur if you touch these objects or surfaces and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth. COVID-19 can also be contracted by inhaling droplets from a sick person who has just coughed or sneezed. This is why it is important to keep a distance of more than two meters from a sick person and to respect basic hygiene measures.
Treatment for COVID-19
There is no specific treatment at this time, although research is ongoing. The treatment is therefore mainly symptomatic, i.e. it is similar to the treatment for a cough, respiratory problems or high temperature.
There is currently no scientific evidence linking ibuprofen to the aggravation of COVID-19 infection.
Generally speaking, if you have a fever, it is recommended to rely on paracetamol. However, if you are currently undergoing an ibuprofen treatment, especially for a chronic illness, do not cease the treatment without prior consultation of your physician.
