Hi, please pass this information on to everyone in each family. I don't want to miss anyone so share as much as you can. Or copy and paste!

I just spoke with my friend Carlie who is a nurse at VGH and they just learnt that Advil makes the virus 10x worse. Tylenol ONLY for the time being. She said Advil kickstarts the virus into pneumonia.

She also said they are not releasing the correct number of cases on the news and they have patients coming in everyday and some currently on ventilators. Soon they won't have enough room in the hospitals to treat patients and will have to turn people away. They've cancelled all surgeries to use the ORs for available ventilators, but it still won't be enough.

She also said she found some people in there 40s and 50s who were previously healthy to be on ventilators and having major difficulty breathing because they took Advil.

Also 4 doctors at VGH are now infected and she said she has never seen her doctors so worried before. So please no Advil and stay safe!!!

Sounds very suspicious. How can one particular pain medicine cause the virus to attack the lung?

ibuprofen成分抗炎藥(如文中提的Advil)是否會加重COVID-19病情,各界有不同立場:
 
1.Lancet一篇通訊評論認為ibuprofen會增加ACE II促進COVID-19的感染。
 
2.英國醫學期刊BMJ亦報導多位醫師與科學家主張不應服用ibuprofen,應改用paracetamol成分藥物(如文中提的Tylenol)。
 
3.但WHO在官方推特表示,尚未看到該藥已知的一般副作用以外的負面影響的報告,基於目前資訊,「不使用ibuprofen」並不是WHO目前的立場,。
 
4.英國NHS亦表示尚無強烈證據,但在證據明確前,建議先避免使用ibuprofen,優先改用paracetamol;若已正在服用ibuprofen,勿未經諮詢醫師直接停藥。

訊息中的 Advil 就是布洛芬(Ibuprofen)的商品名。

BBC 報導指出,「Advil kickstarts the virus into pneumonia」的說法,並沒有確切證據。目前是否應該要在 COVID-19(武漢肺炎)疫情期間避免使用布洛芬,學界尚無定論,但的確有多位醫師與學者作此主張,故英國NHS、WHO發言人皆建議在證據明確前,先避免使用ibuprofen,優先改用paracetamol。
