I’m positive it’s negative

Posted on: March 21, 2020

This hit my Twitter stream yesterday.

Confusing WHO statement about ibuprofen.

The one thing I can say for sure about this WHO statement is that it is confusing. What is the meaning of “does not recommend against the use”?

A clearer and more direct statement might have been: WHO does not have enough information at the moment about using ibuprofen to treat the symptoms of COVID-19.

I would jump on this ordinarily. But I have been sensitised to writing as a form of persuasive communication because I have been grading student essays.

Most of the essays need the same medicine. No, not ibuprofen. The medicine is clear and direct writing. This doctor says take one of each tablet (clear and direct) before, during, and after writing. It will prevent headaches.
