    I don't know what Paracetamol is, but we are looking into it here in the USA.

    I read, as of this morning, no new cases from China. 2/3rds of the deaths were people 65 or older with health conditions. Hopefully this will burn itself out.

    The real story is how Tylenol was rushed into approval, while possible liver damage was covered up. If Ibuprofen (Motrin) is bad, so is aspirin, Advil, all nsaids. Tylenol should only be taken for pain,occasionally and as a last resort.

    Anything that lowers fever will worsen and prolong infection.
