However, we claim that the molecular interpretation of these important results was not scientifically valid, and we provide our academic interpretation that is also basing on our real-life practice using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in management of COVID-19 and we suggest that inhibition of COX-1 and/or COX-2 enzymes might play a lifesaving role in COVID-19 management, and we further discuss the potential of aspirin triggered lipoxins and resolivns in the same context.
