Abstract

The novel coronavirus disease, affecting ~9 million people in the past five months and causing >460,000 deaths worldwide, is completely new to mankind. More than 2,000 research projects registered at ClinTrials.gov are aiming at finding effective treatments for rapid transfer to clinical practice. Unfortunately, just few studies have a sufficiently valid design to provide reliable information for clinical practice.
