Researchers analyzed the records of 412 adults with COVID-19 who were admitted to one of several hospitals in the United States in the period between March 2020 and July 2020.

Of the hospitalized patients, 98 took aspirin in the week before admission or during the first 24 hours after admission. The scientists compared the outcomes for these individuals with those for the 314 people who did not take aspirin.

The analysis of the received data showed that aspirin use was associated with a 43% lower risk of intensive care unit admission, a 44% lower risk of mechanical ventilation, and a 47% lower risk of dying in the hospital.
