Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of favipiravir combined with tocilizumab in the treatment of corona virus disease 2019.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Drug: Favipiravir Combined With Tocilizumab Drug: Favipiravir Drug: Tocilizumab Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In clinical institutions that enroll patients with corona virus disease 2019, three arms, multi-center, randomized and controlled methods are adopted. Patients are divided into three groups, favipiravir combined with tocilizumab group, favipiravir group and tocilizumab group. 150 patients are expected to be enrolled and the cases are allocated according to the ratio of 3( favipiravir combined with tocilizumab group): 1(favipiravir group): 1(tocilizumab group).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical cure rate [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Definition of clinical cure: The viral load of the respiratory specimen was negative for two consecutive times (the interval between the two tests was greater than or equal to one day), the lung image improved, and the body temperature returned to normal for more than 3 days, and the clinical manifestation improved.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Viral nucleic acid test negative conversion rate and days from positive to negative [ Time Frame: 14 days after taking medicine ]
  2. Duration of fever [ Time Frame: 14 days after taking medicine ]
  3. Lung imaging improvement time [ Time Frame: 14 days after taking medicine ]
  4. Mortality rate because of Corona Virus Disease 2019 [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  5. Rate of non-invasive or invasive mechanical ventilation when respiratory failure occurs [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  6. Mean in-hospital time [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
