Ron DeSantis Blocked From Using Monoclonal Antibody Treatments

(RightWing.org) – If anyone wants to know why the Biden administration is failing so badly, they just need to look at Florida. The Sunshine State came up with a COVID-19 treatment plan that really works – so now the federal government has stepped in to shut it down.

On January 24, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) closed down Florida’s monoclonal antibody treatment sites by “revising” the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the two antibodies Florida has been using. The revised EUAs don’t allow the use of the treatments within the US, so the sites can’t continue operating unless the FDA restores the authorization. The Florida Department of Health says the FDA didn’t give any advance notice of the move.

On Monday evening, the state health department announced the closure of its treatment sites until further notice and advised anyone who has tested positive for COVID to contact their doctor about other treatment options. Their statement also registered their disagreement with the FDA’s move.

The FDA blocked the treatments because it says clinical evidence shows the treatments are less effective against the omicron variant. However, this isn’t the first time the Biden administration has tried to stop Florida from getting supplies; last September, the Feds cut antibody deliveries to the state by more than half. It seems the White House only accepts vaccine mandates to fight COVID.
