Over 50? Had a positive Covid test with symptoms? Researchers need your help

People aged over 50 who have had a positive Covid test and are showing symptoms of the virus are being sought for research into helping them get better quickly. Over 50s with certain underlying health conditions and all over 65s with suspected Covid-19 can apply to take part in the University of Oxford study at participating GP practices or www.principletrial.org.

Participants are randomly allocated to receive usual care or usual care and an existing medication. It is hoped the trial can prevent people in these groups needing to go to hospital.
