JLL’s head of New York investment sales, Bob Knakal, fell ill with COVID-19 five weeks ago and used hydroxychloroquine to treat his symptoms, he said on a Bisnow webinar Tuesday.
“I had corona for 17 days, but fortunately it didn’t get into the lungs and after 12 days, the fever broke and I took some hydroxychloroquine,” Knakal said from his suburban home. “I don’t know if it was the medicine or just the fact that it took its course, but out five weeks and 100%. Feeling great, feeling lucky and going for the antibody test tomorrow.”
Tuesday was the first time Knakal spoke about his experience with the virus and his use of the controversial treatment typically used to treat malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
