Small RCT 79 PCR+ patients 55+ comparing pressure-based nasal irrigation with povidone-iodine and sodium bicarbonate, showing improved recovery with povidone-iodine, and 0/37 COVID-19 related hospitalizations for povidone-iodine compared to 1/42 for sodium bicarbonate.
risk of hospitalization, 65.3% lower, RR 0.35, p = 1.00, treatment 0 of 37 (0.0%), control 1 of 42 (2.4%), NNT 42, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of no recovery, 56.8% lower, RR 0.43, p = 0.03, treatment 6 of 27 (22.2%), control 18 of 35 (51.4%), NNT 3.4.
risk of transmission, 36.9% lower, RR 0.63, p = 0.51, treatment 4 of 37 (10.8%), control 6 of 35 (17.1%), NNT 16.
risk of hospitalization, 94.1% lower, RR 0.06, p = 0.004, nasal irrigation vs. CDC data.
