A Democratic New York City council member has credited hydroxychloroquine with saving his life after he contracted the novel coronavirus in March. Democrat Paul Vallone, who represents northeast Queens, told the New York Post he was struggling to breathe before his doctor prescribed hydroxychloroquine, which he took with Azithromycin, the antibiotic also known as Zithromax or Z-Pak.

“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed,” said Mr. Vallone in an interview posted Saturday. “My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two or three days I was able to breathe. Within a week I was back on my feet.”
“I guess all those doctors who are prescribing it are right. This drug is already on the market and the patent is up so it’s cheap. A new drug won’t be. So big money does not want this drug to be used. Always follow the money,” Peter Vallone said in a May 12 Facebook post, sharing a link to an NYU study touting the drug.
“[It] saved my life,” Paul Vallone said in the comments.

I wonder why is the left hiding the truth about#Hydroxycholoroquine, a medicine proven to save lives?🤔— ᴀʜॐ (@adrianahoyos) August 8, 2020
(And that, by the way, it’s not an anabiotic. Dr. Stephen Smith explains).
