Experimental: Anakinra Group
The active treatment group will receive anakinra 100 mg subcutaneously every 6 hours for period of 10 days. For subjects meeting complete response criteria at 5 days, dosing will be decreased to 100 mg twice daily for the remaining 5 days.
The active treatment group will receive anakinra 100 mg subcutaneously every 6-12 hours for a period of 10 days
Other Name: recombinant human IL-ra (rhIL-1ra)
Placebo Comparator: Control Group
The control group will receive normal saline placebo subcutaneously every 6 hours for period of 10 days. For subjects meeting complete repsonse criteria at 5 days, dosing wll be decreased to twice daily for the remaining 5 days.
Drug: Normal saline
The control group will receive normal saline placebo subcutaneously every 6-12 hours for period of 10 days

- Percentage of patients discharged from the hospital alive and without the need for mechanical ventilation. [ Time Frame: Variable up to Day 28 ]Percentage of subjects discharged from hospital without the need for intubation and mechanical ventilation
- Percentage of subjects with 25% change (decrease) in cytokine storm markers at 48 hours [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]25% change (decrease) in noted baseline elevations of serum ferritin, LDH, CRP, and d-dimer.
- Percentage of subjects without increase in oxygen requirement and no increase in oxygen delivery/respiratory support measures after 48 hours. [ Time Frame: Day 2 (48 hours)-Day 10 (240 hours) ]Supplemental oxygen requirement to maintain oxygen saturation >90% stable or decreased without escalation of respiratory support measures (addition of CPAP, initiation of mechanical ventilation)
- Average time in days to achieve sustained ≥93% oxygen saturation without oxygen/respiratory support [ Time Frame: 0-10 days ]Time from initial dosing of IP to achievement of ≥93% oxygen saturation on room air for 24 hours
- Percentage of subjects with resolution of laboratory markers of Cytokine Storm syndrome [ Time Frame: Day 10 ]Normalization or ≥ 75% improvement by Day 10 (120 hours) in each of the following laboratory CSS attributes elevated beyond the normal range at randomization: ferritin, fibrinogen, AST, ALT, leucopenia, thrombocytopenia, d-dimer, CRP, triglycerides, sCD25.
- Percentage of subjects who develop bacterial or fungal or non-Covid-19 viral infection [ Time Frame: Day 0-28 ]No increased prevalence of bacterial or fungal or viral infection through the time of hospital discharge until Day 28.
- Percentage of subjects who develop neutralizing antibody to Covid-19 [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]No failure to develop neutralizing antibody to Covid-19 measured at Day 28.
