Florida launches battle against Biden admin over withholding of monoclonal antibodies

Florida, under the direction of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), has been at the forefront of promoting monoclonal antibodies as an effective, life-saving treatment for patients who are at greater risk for serious COVID-19 reactions.

While originally the Biden administration all but ignored the life-saving treatment option and opted to push Big Pharma-produced vaccines instead, the White House is reportedly playing dirty with the distribution of monoclonal antibodies to the states, and Florida’s surgeon general is ready to fight them tooth-and-nail, the Washington Examiner reports.

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo admonished the Biden administration in a letter, essentially accusing the White House of intentionally withholding the distribution of the treatments to leading states like Florida.

So far, President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have rejected such accusations.

What’s going on?

While Florida had set up specific treatment facilities around the state to provide the cutting-edge treatment option, due to a national shortage of monoclonal antibodies, the federal government stepped in back in September and assumed full control of the distribution.

The orders for the drugs from Florida and six other southern states were severely scaled back as a result. Those states alone accounted for some 70% of total orders for the treatment.

The U.S. government was reportedly worried that Florida and other states would use up the supply too quickly, stating that taking over distribution was necessary to “work to ensure our supply of these life-saving therapies remains available for all states and territories, not just some.”

Perhaps if the government wasn’t solely pushing questionably effective vaccines for the past year, and instead, pushing the life-saving therapeutic treatment option, other states could have secured necessary stockpiles of the drug.

Ladapo strikes back

Florida’s surgeon general isn’t interested in sitting this fight out, as in his letter he accused the White House of purposely interrupting the supply of monoclonal antibodies to the state.

His scathing letter to the Biden admin isn’t without warrant, as infusion centers in Florida and several other states are already running low or completely out of some of the more effective COVID treatments, and will be forced to wait until the government’s next monthly shipment.

While Florida and virtually all other states are experiencing a surge in cases, and with the Biden administration already embroiled in controversy for its failure to provide adequate testing for Americans before the holidays, it looks as though this situation might become much worse before it begins to improve.
