These drugs include Omeprozole, Doxilac, Pantoprozole and the like.
The researchers found that patients with COVID-19 who took drugs in this group had a 2.3 times higher mortality rate than those who did not take them. Also, these patients had a 2.5-fold increased risk of severe disease and being connected to a ventilator.
