What are the side effects of this "miracle" drug? Do some people have such harmful side effects that it should only be given in the cases of strongest need?  Or give it to everyone so they can all get liver failure, ch"v?

This is all leaning on a French study of 26 patients. 6 of which didn’t make it to the end. So it’s based on about 5 patients that recovered more than the control group.

The reason there's such a push for this drug is because it's already been rigorously tested so the side affects are known.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Please state your source.
Are the side effects the same when using it to treat different disease? Are the side effects the same when using in in different dosages or in combination with another drug?

Anecdotally, I personally know someone who was in very bad shape last week, was given this, and has shown tremendous improvement. Of course it can be unrelated and means nothing, hence the term “anecdotally”.

This twitter thread talks about hydroxychloroquine together with azithromycin. Most of the critics are against using azithromycin.
This KJ doctor has been using hydroxychloroquine together with zinc.

You don't understand why he posted on Shabbos?

I don't know if the tweet is true or not, but I know first hand that he is in the hospital. Yissacher Chaim ben Esther Malka.

The following is a quote from Rabbi Yisroel Reisman's Parsha sheet that was distributed before Shabbos, courtesy of @Yehudaa https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=115030.msg2215083#msg2215083

Quote
We Daven for Yeshuos for all those who are ill including Yissacher Ben Esther Malka who was just rushed to the hospital, that Dr. Yissacher Greenberg will have a Refuah Sh’leima B’karov amongst Shar Cholei Yisrael, among Shar Cholim in general.
Seems like the name Chaim was added since.

The story is true. We know him well. My family used him and he is best friends with my wife's boss. No one can confirm that he wrote the tweet though. No one is talking because that is not whats important. What is Important is to pressure the pharmaceutical companies to release the meds for compassionate use.
