A Corrigendum on
Interferon-α2b Treatment for COVID-19

by Zhou Q, Chen V, Shannon CP, Wei X-S, Xiang X, Wang X, Wang Z-H, Tebbutt SJ, Kollmann TR and Fish EN (2020). Front. Immunol. 11:1061. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2020.01061

Error in Figure/Table

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1 as published. For ‘Days from symptom onset to treatment,’ the IFN+ARB and ARB values were inadvertently switched. IFN+ARB should be 8.0 [5.0,11.0] and ARB should be 17.0 [10.0, 22.0]. The corrected Table 1 appears below.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.


Table 1 Demographics and clinical characteristics of patient cohort.

Keywords: interferon, COVID-19, viral shedding, IL-6, inflammation, ARDS
