Dem NY Councilman couldn’t breathe, then his life was saved


Democrat New York Councilman Paul Vallone told the public this week that Hydroxychloroquine saved his life. He nearly died but took the drug with a standard Z-pack and quickly came back from the edge, the New York Post reported.

“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed. My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two to three days I was able to breathe,” Vallone told The Post. “Within a week I was back on my feet.”

Though Vallone went public with his coronavirus diagnosis in an April 1 Twitter post, saying he was experiencing “mild symptoms,” his actual condition was considerably more severe. Vallone’s initial prognosis was particularly grim, as he also suffers from sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disease that attacks his lungs.

We were in panic mode when I went down because I didn’t have a lot of immune response,” he said. “I needed something to stay alive.”

Hydroxychloroquine “worked for me.”

If it works any number of people and a doctor prescribes it then it should continue being used It should be a choice between a patient and their doctor not used as a political football. Fauci should be ashamed of himself. He’s already made enough errors to be removed from his over exalted position, and beginning to sound like like bungling Biden.

The problem isn’t if it works, because it does. The problem is that HCQ has been around for over 60 years with a proven track record for numerous maladies and few side effects, it’s cheap to make, and cheap to purchase. Since the patent has expired, any company can make it so no one company has a monopoly on it. Those fighting against it can’t get kick-backs from the manufacturer like they can with newer, less effective, and infinitely more expensive meds that are still under patent.
