No, don't listen to people saying its fine to take it, you may build up an antibiotic resistance where it no longer works and you could get very ill

NO! Azithromycin is an antibiotic to treat bacterial infections not viruses.

In the statement, which was released Sunday, IHU-Méditerranée Infection described the treatment protocol for COVID-19 patients. “A treatment with the hydroxychloroquine combination (200 mg x 3 per day for 10 days) + Azithromycin (500 mg on the 1st day then 250 mg per day for 5 more days), as part of the precautions for use of this association (including an electrocardiogram on D0 and D2)," they write, in the translated statement. “In cases of severe pneumonia, a broad-spectrum antibiotic is also used.”
