Health official in UAE says taking Aspirin cannot be used to treat Covid-19

-

A top official from the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) in the UAE said aspirin, a medicine used to reduce pain and fever, cannot be used to treat the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

“Aspirins cannot be used to treat Covid-19 disease, and there are other more effective drugs that are used for this purpose,” Dr. Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson for MOHAP, said in the regular media briefing.

She also debunked the ‘fake news’ that is making the rounds of social media that the novel coronavirus is caused by bacteria.

“There is no truth to what is circulated on social media that Covid-19 is caused by bacteria, as all studies have shown that the disease is caused by the SARS-CoV-2, a type of coronavirus,” she said.

Al Hosani added that at some cases it is possible that bacterial infections arise from Covid-19 complications.
