NIH officials told reporters in a conference call on Thursday that they anticipated the study to be completed within “months, not years”. Bloomberg reported.

“There is no standard for anticoagulation in hospitalized COVID-19 patients, and a strict requirement for clinical evidence,” NIH Director Francis Collins said in a statement. “Conducting tests using many existing networks of research sites provides the scale and speed that will give us the answer faster.”
