If memory serves, azithromycin works by binding to the 50S subunit in ribosomes affecting RNA synthesis. So it theoretically might help for an RNA virus. Secondary prevention of bacterial infections, specifically hospital acquired pneumonia, might also help. But by the time the patient is in the ICU you are sometimes throwing the kitchen sink at things.
