Doctors and scientists across the world are still researching to find the treatment of the coronavirus infection. Several precautionary have been taken to stop the further outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, including self-home quarantined. A shocking case has come to light from Britain where a 4-year-old girl suffering from coronavirus-like symptoms fall sick after taking ibuprofen, her family claimed.

Amid the hot debate over anti-inflammatory medicines whether it should be taken to combat the virus, a Facebook user Dan Collins of Bristol shared a post about his stepdaughter Amelia.

He shared the dire warning on FB, “To those of you that have children please read. If your child has symptoms of coronavirus, DO NOT give them ibuprofen.”

“Amelia’s been unwell since Tuesday, cough, fever, cold. This morning she came into my room and got into my bed burning hot and not wanting to get up,” he wrote Sunday.

He mentioned that within an hour of giving the tablet the condition of the girl dropped dramatically. Her heart rate was not at a normal rate and unable to keep her eyes open. Even her body was shaking and unable to lift her head and soon her body temperature also got increased, Collins wrote.

“We called back up and they sent out an emergency ambulance, once the paramedics got here they managed to bring her temp and stats down a bit, they’re still higher than normal but not dangerous high anymore,” Collins added.

“Now she’s back on [acetaminophen] she’s back to just being her poorly self. The paramedics only told us while here that were not to give her ibuprofen!”

Moreover, several medical experts have warned people not to take ibuprofen if they feel coronavirus-like symptoms.
