Red states are having big success with this one COVID treatment and now the Biden administration is going to start rationing it

You've probably heard about monoclonal antibodies—a therapeutic treatment that has been highly successful at treating COVID-19. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for instance, aggressively championed the procedure in his state, which saw such promising results that even Dr. Anthony Fauci came out strongly in support of it.

Now, however, the Biden administration is announcing that it will begin rationing the treatment throughout the U.S., citing an alleged fear of shortages:

An HHS spokesperson said seven states have accounted for 70% of orders for the therapy. Those seven states are Florida, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana.

"Given this reality, we must work to ensure our supply of these life-saving therapies remains available for all states and territories, not just some," the HHS spokesperson said.

The distribution, which is similar to a system employed earlier this year, will fall to HHS, which will allocate product to states and territories each week, rather administration sites ordering them directly.

But is the threat of shortages real? Texas Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough wrote on Facebook this week that there was, in fact, no looming shortfall of the drug:

As of yesterday the Biden Administration is metering how many doses of Regeneron are sent to Texas and thus limiting how many are sent to the Montgomery County location. Telling Texas to reduce its use of the therapeutic treatment that has literally been saving lives and reducing hospitalizations.

Now I'd like to think this is because of a supply issue and it will be temporary at best. But it's not. The manufacturer has confirmed supplies are ample but due to the Defense Production Act, the White House and it's agencies are the only entities who can purchase and distribute this treatment.

So less than a week after the president tells us his patience is wearing thin and he is mandating vaccines to millions of Americans his administration limits and all but removes a non-controversial and highly successful treatment from our war chest of combating this virus.

A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services told CNN that the department "will determine the amount of product each state and territory receives on a weekly basis."

Texas and Florida should merely begin supplying their residents with Ivermectin- screw Biden and Fauci.

How is the HHS claiming authority for rationing Monoclonal Antibodies?
This should be between the vendor and the customer.

First Alzheimer Joe inflicts infected illegal immigrants upon Red states, then limits our ability to respond to the resulting COVID surge.

Nice work, jackass.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

The false positive rate was 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

Quarantine the sick. Protect the vulnerable. Hang the guilty. Free everyone else.

We can surely trust FedZilla to make the right choices, can't we?

How long before Idaho is on the states that will get zero Regeneron treatment doses?

Unfortunately, the Regeneron monoclonal antibodies are far more effective than Ivermectin.

Begging the question, “What is the redline that triggers the fast-approaching escalation of conflict to violence?”

They’re not rationing it, they’re restricting it from conservative states who are using creative treatments to fight the virus.

This, coupled with the forced migration of infected illegal immigrants into red states is tantamount to attempted (and maybe actual) genocide...

We have been aggressively using MAB since December. I believe we have given more MAB than nay other hospital in New Hampshire.

The news that they are taking ours away to go to a central repository was very bad news, indeed.

We switched to Regeneron as soon as bamlanivimab was shown to be ineffective against the UK variant.

HHS has bought all of them. In this case, HHS IS the vendor.

What's changed is that they want to decide who they will do business with.

Seeing that DeSantis is in talks with GSK to buy theirs direct?

Imagine the howls of protest from the media if Trump had withheld life-saving medicines from blue states.

Not when Ivermectin is used as prophylaxis- preventing the need for Regeneron or hospitalization.

Better to keep the virus out, or treat at first symptoms - not wait for severe symptoms.

Pretty simple,
