Small study with 28 patients treated with ivermectin + AZ + cholecalciferol and 7 control patients.
All treated patients were PCR- at day 10 while all control patients remained PCR+.
The mean duration of symptoms was 3 days in the treatment group and 10 days in the control group.

Espitia-Hernandez et al., 8/15/2020, retrospective, Mexico, North America, peer-reviewed, mean age 45.1, 5 authors, dosage 6mg days 1-2, 8-9.
risk of viral+ at day 10, 97.2% lower, RR 0.03, p < 0.001, treatment 0 of 28 (0.0%), control 7 of 7 (100.0%), continuity correction due to zero event (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).

Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance, however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes when combining the results of many trials.
