The dangers of the federal government hoarding monoclonal antibody treatment are coming to fruition.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lost it when Biden announced that the federal government would take over the disbursement of monoclonal antibody treatments.
His concern was that the states that needed it most would be locked out if they were put on a monthly allotment while other states were able to stockpile supplies they did not need.
Texas is now out of the treatment, and it will not get anymore until next month when the federal government sends out its next allotment.
But People Will Die
It was not until Florida saw mass success with this treatment that it was even on Biden’s radar.
As soon as he got wind of it, he took over the supply chain distribution, much to the chagrin of red-state governors.
Now the worst nightmare has come true… Texas has run out with almost a full week left to go before the end of the year and there is nothing that can be done about it until Biden opens up the locker and sends more out.
Texas Health and Human Services Commission stated, “Other monoclonal antibodies have not shown to be effective against the Omicron variant, which now accounts for more than 90 percent of new cases.
“The infusion centers will continue to offer those antibodies as prescribed by health care providers for people diagnosed with a non-Omicron case of COVID-19.”
The treatment to which they referred was the sotrovimab monoclonal antibody treatment.
Texas only received just shy of 2,700 doses of the treatment in mid-December, and they are already gone.
Now Texans have to wait until the week of January 3 for the next shipment, and there is no telling how many lives will be lost in the meantime.
Do you think Biden should be distributing these treatments and holding back supplies from states that need them more?
