As I understand it, many of the deaths from Covid-19 are from pneumonia, that technically is from an opportunistic bacterial infection which would not have gotten a foothold if not for the changes to the mucous of the lungs and bronchial tubes brought on by the virus.

So, like HIV, Covid-19 does not always kill directly. It kills by making you vulnerable to something you otherwise never would have gotten.

Azithomycin keeps at bay those opportunistic infections until you can fight off the Covid-19 itself.

Caveat: IANAD. I just have attended lots of workshops and symposia on subjects like this, because it was relavant to the job I had in the late 90s and early 00s.

ETA: the times doctors have prescribed antibiotics when you have a viral infections, it's usually been some kind of situation like this.
