NYC Democratic Councilman Thanks Trump – Says Hydroxychloroquine Saved Him From COVID-19

City Councilman Paul Vallone credits the controversial malaria drug hydroxychloroquine with saving his life as he battled the coronavirus earlier this year.

Vallone, a Democrat representing Queens, told the New York Post that the drug “worked for me” when he was battling a bad case of the virus back in March.

“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed,” Vallone told the paper. “My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two to three days I was able to breathe.”

Vallone, who suffers from the auto-immune disease sarcoidosis, said his case was bad enough that he “needed something to stay alive.” He took hydroxychloroquine with a flu Z-pack and “within a week I was back on my feet.”

He claimed that the drug saved his life and thanked President Trump for raising awareness about the medication.

“At that time, there was only fear and panic, he offered hope in a possible treatment when there was none. With my sarcoidosis and then my COVID symptoms, It basically saved me. For that, my family will always be thankful,” Vallone said.

  1. Wow!! A glimpse of אמת. So when are we charging the Democrats, the complicit media and the whole medical establishment from the cdc down to every doctor with mass murder??

  2. the truth will eventually cpme out, but only after the elections. otherwise it might help Trump’s reelection. this is a rotten bunch that is willing to do anything to deny Trump a second term. won’t help them Bez”h

  3. @Anon. for every claim of this drug working, there are equally as many that did not, and worse, led to other problems. I’m glad it worked out for mr. vallone. im also glad that he is able to swallow his pride and say thank you to a political enemy.

  4. It’s the ZINC that is the (alleged/apparent) virus killer. The media focus on HCQ is misleading. If coronavirus protocol works (and according to reputable doctors such as Dr. Zelenko it does) the ZINC is the ikkar and the preferred Ionophore is the toful. (My non-medical understanding of the matter.)

  5. ANON21, here is simple answer: Hydroxychloroquine cost only $3 per dose and nobody controls the patent, Remdesivir and “vaccine” will cost $1000+ per dose, many powerful people who donate to politicians invested billions of dollars into research of these drugs including Dr. Fauci who holds 500+ patents. It is called ROI (Return On Investment).

  6. I happen to know 10 elderly people who were critically ill with corona, with severe breathing problems, who all recovered due to taking hydroxychloroquine. The doctors confirmed they wouldn’t have made it without hydroxychloroquine. Fauci and Cuomo and the rest of big govt. would rather have people die than being cured. The more proof that the drug helped, the more the media bashed it.

  7. Ememc: Happens to be not true what you are saying. Just false news and propaganda as came out awhile ago that the reports against the medication were falsefied. We at the frum Jewish communities know hundreds and hundreds of people who saw rapid improvement right after taking the medications. Including Doctors who addmited to taking them when they were sick. Do you personally know even one person who took it on time and didnt make it? Those who are using politics to prevent others from taking it are definatly close to being guilty of murder.

  8. The dems and media are evil, they have dead bodies on their hand.
    EmEmC for you to go along and deny the benefits of this drug is beyond disgusting.
    I personally know many people who have taken and saw unbelievable results in a few day.
    Look up Dr Simone Gold who has said it’s has amazing results.

    I pray Hashem punishes the media, the dems and their evil supporters.

  9. So I repeat when do we see murder charges?? Probably when mashiach comes. אז ירננו עצי היער מלפני ה כי בא לשפוט את הארץ. הודו לה כי טוב. We see the simcha and goodness inherent in hashem meting judgement on the רשעים

  10. If there is even one person who was afraid to take hydroxychloroquine due to false media bashing, the media should be held accountable. The only “negative side effects” of hydroxychloroquine is the money value of vaccines dropping. Too many greedy people, including fauci, have a vested interest in the vaccine profits.
