Brief Summary:
Sofosbuvir has been recently recommended as a possible antiviral for COVID-19, based on structural studies and multiple alignment analysis. By comparing the positive-stranded RNA genomes of HCV and SARS-CoV-2, it has been postulated that sofosbuvir might be an optimal nucleotide analogue to repurpose for COVID-19 treatment

Arm Intervention/treatment
Sofosbuvir / Daclatsvir
A drug used in the treatment of HCV infection, given in the same dose 400mg and 60 mg respectively once daily for 14 days
Drug: Sofosbuvir 400 MG/ Daclatasvir 60mg
Giving these two drugs for treatment of COVID patients
