RCT 392 patients, median treatment delay 5 days, showing improved viral recovery at 5 days. Symptom recovery was no different at 5 days, and the treatment arm had two ICU admissions compared to zero for control. There were no serious adverse events.
risk of ICU admission, 404.1% higher, RR 5.04, p = 0.24, treatment 2 of 194 (1.0%), control 0 of 198 (0.0%), continuity correction due to zero event (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm), table S3.
risk of hospitalization, 2.1% higher, RR 1.02, p = 1.00, treatment 5 of 194 (2.6%), control 5 of 198 (2.5%), table S3.
risk of no recovery, 15.8% higher, RR 1.16, p = 0.37, treatment 59 of 194 (30.4%), control 52 of 198 (26.3%), day 5.
relative viral load, 12.1% better, RR 0.88, p = 0.006, treatment 194, control 198, day 5.
risk of no viral clearance, 14.3% lower, RR 0.86, p = 0.009, treatment 136 of 194 (70.1%), control 162 of 198 (81.8%), NNT 8.5, day 5.

Take home message This was the first study to evaluate the effect of early nitazoxanide therapy in mild Covid-19. Nitazoxanide did not accelerate symptom resolution after 5 days of therapy but did reduce viral load significantly with no serious adverse events.

Supplementary Appendix to the Manuscript Early use of nitazoxanide in mild Covid-19 disease: randomized, placebocontrolled trial FBS, 1% L-glutamine and 1% penicillin/streptomycin, and maintained as described above. Virus and preparation of viral stock The SARS-CoV- Upon registration of a patient in the system, a unique trial identifier and barcode number (for laboratory tests) were generated and the patient was randomly allocated into group A or B, as mentioned above. Forms within the system were divided into sections that allowed registration were given a thermometer and instructed to complete a self-administered questionnaire, which consisted of a list of symptoms and scales on which to record their intensity on each day of therapy (Table S2 ). Patients were also instructed to return to the study site if any adverse event occurred. One day before completion of therapy, patients received a phone call to remind them to come back to the study site on the next day for final evaluation. Every included patient was followed according to the following data collection plan: 1. Clinical evaluation (fever, dry cough, fatigue): daily during the course of therapy (via selfadministered questionnaire). RNA extraction and real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) Nasopharyngeal swab samples obtained from each patient were collected in a single..
