Brief Summary:
In December 2019, Wuhan, in Hubei province, China, became the center of an outbreak of pneumonia caused by CoVID-19, and the number of cases of infection with CoVID-19 identified in Wuhan increased markedly over the later part of January 2020, with cases identified in multiple other Provinces of China and internationally.Given no specific antiviral therapy for CoVID-19 infection and the availability of Yinhu Qingwen Granula as a potential antiviral Chinese medicine based on vivo antiviral studies in CoVID-19, this adaptive, randomized,double-blind,controlled trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Yinhu Qingwen Granula in patients hospitalized with severe CoVID-19.

Detailed Description:
In December 2019, Wuhan, in Hubei province, China, became the center of an outbreak of pneumonia caused by CoVID-19, and the number of cases of infection with CoVID-19 identified in Wuhan increased markedly over the later part of January 2020, with cases identified in multiple other Provinces of China and internationally.The clinical spectrum of CoVID-19 infection appears to be wide,including asymptomatic infection, mild upper respiratory disease, severe viral pneumonia with respiratory failure, and even death. However,there is no specific antiviral therapy for CoVID-19 infection, which provides a window of opportunity for testing candidate antiviral therapies. Previous experiences with SARS and MERS-CoV, highlight the need of the early intervention with Chinese medicine, and so as for CoVID-19 infection. The treatment of Chinese medicine for CoVID-19 infection suggested its benefits to improve of clinical outcomes, reduce the risk of disease progression, accelerate recovery, and reduce intensive supportive care and long-term hospitalization.Yinhu Qingwen Granula was a kind of herbal granula made from "Yinhu Qingwen Decoction", which consists of 11 common non-toxic traditional Chinese medicine such as Polygonum cuspidatum, Honeysuckle, Nepeta, Ligustrum lucidum. Previous vivo antiviral studies showed its activity for the inbition of CoVID-19. This clinical trial is planned to evaluate the improvement of the changes in the ratio of PaO2 to FiO2 from the baseline for patients with severe CoVID-19 as the primary outcome, and to evaluate the effect of the symptoms relief and virus clearance as well as the clinical safety.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Yinhu Qingwen Granula Group
Based on the standard medical treatment, the patients will be given Yinhu Qingwen Granula for 10 days.
Drug: Yinhu Qingwen Granula
Yinhu Qingwen Granula is a kind of herbal granula made from "Yinhu Qingwen Decoction", which consits of 11 Chinese herbal medicine as Honeysuckle, Polygonum cuspidatum, Schizonepeta, Longspur epimedium, etc. The granula will be dissolved into 600ml decoction and divided to 3 times (once with 200ml). It will be given a 200ml per time, three times a day, for 10 days.

Other: standard medical treatment
Standard medical treatment is adhered to the protocol of the treatment for the severe CoVID-19 according to the guideline approved by National Health Commission of China.

Placebo Comparator: Yinhu Qingwen Granula Low-dose Group
Based on the standard medical treatment, the patients will be given 10% dose of Yinhu Qingwen Granula for 10 days.
Drug: Yin Hu Qing Wen Granula(low does)
This intervention is given as 10% dose of YinHu QingWen Granula.The granula will be dissolved into 600ml decoction and divided to 3 times (once with 200ml).

Other: standard medical treatment
Standard medical treatment is adhered to the protocol of the treatment for the severe CoVID-19 according to the guideline approved by National Health Commission of China.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. changes in the ratio of PaO2 to FiO2 from baseline [ Time Frame: Day 10 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PaO2 [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  2. blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  3. clinical status rating on the 7-point ordinal scale [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
    The ordinal scale is an assessment of the clinical status at the first assessment of a given study day. The scale is as follows: 1) Death; 2) Hospitalized, on invasive mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO); 3) Hospitalized, on non-invasive ventilation or high flow oxygen devices; 4) Hospitalized, requiring supplemental oxygen; 5) Hospitalized, not requiring supplemental oxygen; 6) Not hospitalized, limitation on activities; 7) Not hospitalized, no limitations on activities.

  4. Time to Clinical Improvement (TTCI) [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
    TTCI is defined as the time (in days) from initiation of study treatment (Yinhu Qingwen Granula or its low-dose granula) until a decline of two categories from status at randomisation on the 7-point ordinal scale of clinical status which ranges from 0 (death) to 6 (Not hospitalized, no limitations on activities).

  5. Duration (hours) of non-invasive mechanical ventilation or high-flow nasal catheter oxygen inhalation use [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  6. Duration (hours) of invasive mechanical ventilation use [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  7. Duration (hours) of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) use [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  8. Duration (days) of Oxygen use [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  9. The proportion of the patients reporting 2019-nCoV RT-PCR negativity at Day 10 after treatment [ Time Frame: Day 10 ]
  10. The counts/percentage of Lymphocyte [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  11. Time to hospital discharge with clinical recovery from the randomisation [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  12. The incidence of critical status conversion in 30 days [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
    Critical status is defined as: 1) respiratory failure with the need of invasive mechanical ventilation; or 2) shock; or 3) other system organ failure with ICU admission.

  13. All-cause mortality within 30 days [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
  14. Frequency of severe adverse drug events [ Time Frame: up to 30 days ]
