Brief Summary:
Demonstration of the efficacy of amantadine over placebo in the population of patients with moderate or severe COVID-19 in the initial stage of the disease treated in the hospital

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Patients With Moderate or Severe COVID-19 Drug: Amantadine Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Use of high-doses of amantadine in hospitalized patients in the early phase of moderate or severe COVID-19, compared to placebo, will shorten the duration of the disease and reduce the risk of death and treatment with invasive mechanical ventilation in Intensive Care Units (ICU).
