Interesting - You made me look to see if this was true.
After scanning various study summaries on Google (I'm not a doctor), the only positive news I could find was that, "Early Hydroxychloroquine but not Chloroquine use reduces ICU admission in COVID-19 patients".
In other words, HCQ - which reduces auto-immuno responses as a side effect - helps keep people that start early treatment (I'm assuming this means getting the HCQ injections when they get a positive test or very soon after) have fewer admissions into the ICU.
These people are hoping to avoid very rare COVID vaccine side effects (in the 1:1,000,000 range), while risking the more common HCQ side effects - just to avoid the ICU part of the hospital? That's a stretch, IMO.
I'd think that "extremely positive" would be not getting COVID in the first place, or in the uncommon breakthrough case, staying out of the hospital altogether - not just possibly avoiding an elongated, rougher hospital stay.
