There is urgent need of an effective therapy for Covid-19. To date, the best treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection is unknown. Baricitinib has been identified as potential treatment for 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease, because of its immunomodulating and hypothesized antiviral activity.
This is a multicenter randomized clinical trial that aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of baricitinib in patients with SARS-CoV2 pneumonia. Patients will be randomized to receive or not baricitinib as adjunctive therapy. All patients will continue to receive the ongoing standard therapy: chloroquine/idrossichloroquine and low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) eventually associated with ritonavir/lopinavir or darunavir/ritonavir will be allowed for all included patients.
The primary endpoint measure is the efficacy of baricitinib in reducing the number of patients requiring invasive ventilation after 7 and 14 days of treatment.
Secondary endpoints will be mortality rates and toxicity of baricitinib.

Experimental: BAR group
Patients who will be assigned (after a computerized randomization) to the BAR group will. receive baricitinib as adjunctive therapy.
Baricitinib will be administered at 4 mg daily via oral route for 14 days as add-on therapy or 2 mg daily via oral route (eGFR between 30 and 60 ml/min and for patients with age >75 years old) for 14 days as add-on therapy
Drug: Baricitinib Oral Tablet
Baricitinib will be administered by oral route at different dosages according to age and kidney function. The drug will be administered for 14 days, unless occurrence of discontinuation criteria.
No Intervention: Control group
Patients in the control group will continue to receive standard therapy.
