Yes you can,depends.: Corona Virus treatment so far is symptomatic and supportive. It really depends what you treat with Disprin/Compral. You are they do not have Ibuprofen.

Coronavirus: Please do not medicate yourself. First self-isolate. If your symptoms get worse please go to a Doctor to find out what type of virus or infection you have and get the right kind of medication or call an ambulance to take you to the emergency room of your nearest hospital where you can get tested.

COVID 19: Although the World Health Organization had recommended against Ibuprofen use, they have since reversed that. The disprine contains aspirin & codeine - that is a big gun, see if non-narcotics will do the trick first. The Comprol contains acetaminophen, aspirin & caffeine. Should be ok.
