There is currently no pharmacotherapy with for the treatment of COVID-19. We aimed to investigate the effects of early and high-dose vitamin C (VC) therapy in hospitalized patients with COVID-19.

Results: When the groups were compared in terms of clinical data, there was no significant difference in terms of the patients requiring supplemental oxygen therapy (p=0.808), requiring intensive care (p=0.662), and survival rates (p=0.185).
