Doctors on Long Island are using some decades-old medication with promising results in fighting the novel coronavirus.
Dr. Ryan Saadi, of Quantaira Health, partnered with Dr. Muhammad Alam at Plainview Hospital and Dr. Imtiaz Ahmad, a Harvard-trained epidemiologist and pulmonologist in Florida, to use the much-talked-about hydroxychloroquine combined with the antibiotic doxycycline.
