Listen to the Tedtalk by Dr. Luciana Borio on Ebola. She mentions two hospitals – Hospital A and Hospital B. The doctors at hospital A have a different way to test the study drug than the doctors at hospital B. Let’s call the study from hospital A as study design A and the study from hospital B as study design B. Now, consider that you work for a hospital and the hospital is treating coronavirus instead of Ebola. You are required to design a study – Would you select study design A or study design B, or an alternative. Justify your answer.
