One point about this, is that it is not unexpected that they have a through protocol. It is a requirement for ethics approval for human research, and also the FDA require conduct of clinical trials to meet a certain standard.There would have been a fair amount of thought went into the choice of the primary outcome. They obviously feel that if someone has a respiratory illness with certain characteristics it is much more likely to be COVID-19 and that is a better option than using a PCR criteria. I have my doubts but they are more likely to be correct.
