Did Biden's FDA Block Monoclonal Antibody Treatments to Punish FL?

Is Biden’s FDA Blocking COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibodies to Punish Florida?

Covid-19, Joe Biden

On January 25th, the FDA revoked the emergency-use authorizations (EUAs) for two life-saving COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatments. As a result of this decision, the Florida Department of Health shut down all COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatment sites statewide. FL Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham that the FDA based that decision on an ‘observational study‘ that was conducted by a consultant from a rival drug company.

This COVID therapeutic antibody ban by the FDA caused the Florida Department of Health to shut down all COVID- 19 treatment sites statewide. (Thousands of Floridians were in the queue for these treatments.) Supposedly, the FDA’s decision is based upon the assumption that monoclonal antibodies are not an effective treatment for the Omicron variant. Since COVID medical experts have proven that the COVID vaccine is ineffective in preventing Omicron, why is the Biden administrations still mandating COVID-19 vaccines? Why hasn’t the FDA recommended against them? Watch as Governor Ron DeSantis replies to Laura Ingraham’s question “What is really going on here?

“Their view is you should only worry about vaccines. Don’t discuss treatment. …We reject that. … In fact, in our vaccine sites Laura, it’s usually 75 to 80 percent of the people that go in to get treatment have been vaccinated. Many of them have gotten booster shots and yet, they’re still getting infected. So, this is not on the up-and-up here. And look, in Florida, we just anticipate hostility from this administration.That’s just what they do. They are much more interested in picking political fights than they are in actually being there for the people in our state that need this assistance.”
