Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to event [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Time until resolution of symptoms


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical condition on day 2 [ Time Frame: On day 2 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 2. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  2. Clinical condition on day 5 [ Time Frame: On day 5 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 5. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  3. Clinical condition on day 8 [ Time Frame: On day 8 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 8. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  4. Clinical condition on day 11 [ Time Frame: On day 11 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 11. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  5. Clinical condition on day 15 [ Time Frame: On day 15 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 15. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  6. Clinical condition on day 21 [ Time Frame: On day 21 (± 1 day) after randomization ]
    Clinical condition in an ordinal scale of 7 points, on day 21. Higher scores indicate worse outcomes

  7. Proportion of subjects with additional care [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Proportion of subjects who require hospitalization, use of supplementary oxygen for >24 hours or ICU admission

  8. Proportion of subjects who die [ Time Frame: From randomization up to 21 days ]
    Proportion of subjects who die

  9. Duration of additional care [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Duration of supplementary oxygen, hospitalization, ICU stay

  10. Adverse events [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Proportion of subjects who develop solicited adverse events

  11. Proportion of subjects who discontinue intervention [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Proportion of subjects who required discontinuation of the intervention due to adverse events

  12. Time to event [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Time until deterioration of 2 or more points in an ordinal 7 points scale.

  13. Duration of fever [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Number of days with fever since randomization
