Statement on the status of AustralaSian COVID-19 Trial (ASCOT)

This statement was first published by the AustralaSian COVID-19 Trial (ASCOT).

Following an observational study published in The Lancet on Friday, 22 May, the AustralaSian COVID-19 Trial (ASCOT) has paused patient recruitment pending deliberations by the governance and ethics committees overseeing the trial. We expect these deliberations to occur rapidly and will provide further information as they arise.
