Led by Oxford University researchers, the PRINCIPLE trial is working across all UK communities to evaluate if treatment administered early in the course of the Covid-19 illness can help people aged over 50 recover quickly, without the need for hospital admission.
Sadhu Yogvivekdas, Head of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Sanstha, UK & Europe, explained details of the trial to its vast network of worshipers and followers as part of an online sermon, explaining that those with Covid-19 symptoms can join online from home or via GP practices across the country, without the need for face-to-face visits.
While developing grassroots partnerships has been a major focus of the trial’s recruitment strategy so far, recruiting people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities has been a particular challenge.
