Abstract

This article discusses from a pharmacological point of view, the points of weakness in a correspondence published at the Lancet Respiratory Medicine that has suggested a hypothesis relating ACEIs, ARBs and ibuprofen to be associated with a higher risk for COVID-19 infection and complications. This article also explains some unfortunate mistakes that have been made by some who have adopted this hypothesis and decided to unwisely recommend against these important drugs.
