The Covid commissars are doing everything in their power to suppress any preventative or treatment that is not vaccines, Remdesivir, or ventilators. People are dying as a result of this criminal idiocy. From Monica Showalter at americanthinker.com:
Is Joe Biden trying to top the vile, cruel record of blue-state governors such as New York’s Andrew Cuomo, who seeded COVID patients into the nursing homes?
It sure looks like it, given his strange, sudden, and absolute shutdown of monoclonal antibody treatments on patients who are being successfully treated with the therapy in Florida. For vulnerable, sick people waiting in line for it, including those right up to the date of scheduled treatment, tough luck — go to the back of the line, and see if you can find some other treatment, and hope your COVID does not progress to the morgue.
That’s what Joe Biden is offering Florida, a red state that voted against him in 2020, that maybe, just maybe, he’d like to punish a little, not just for not voting for him, but to erase its record of success on COVID. He seems to be out to punish Florida by ensuring that Florida’s COVID death count ascends to those of his favored blue states. Whatever Joe’s motive here, there are no honorable answers as we explore this.
According to Fox News:
The Florida Department of Health announced that it is closing all monoclonal antibody treatment sites in the state after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration rescinded emergency-use authorizations for two particular treatments for COVID-19.
The Biden administration has consistently promoted ineffective vaccines and either suppressed effective Covid remedies or, as they’re doing now, directed such remedies along political lines. From Sundance at conservativetreehouse.com:
When Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services made the announcement earlier this month (LINK) that they were taking full control over Monoclonal Antibody drugs (mAb) in order to begin rationing the highly effective treatment for COVID-19 infection, several people sounded alarm bells as there was the potential for rationing of COVID treatment based on political ideology. Representative Chip Roy of Texas was one of the first to raise concerns (link).
The change in HHS approach followed republican governor Ron DeSantis of Florida promoting the use of mAb and opening up dozens of treatment centers throughout his state. Other governors quickly took notice of the effective action plan of DeSantis in Florida and started to follow that path.
As soon as HHS noticed the red state governors were working on a effective treatment alternative to the vaccine approach, HHS appears to have moved in to block it – thereby restricting the treatment pathway in order to enhance the vaccine approach. [HHS Announcement] Note the alarm word “equitable“:
It took a week for the new HHS restrictions to impact the pre-existing orders. However, now Alabama is the first state to draw attention to the problem Joe Biden’s administration is creating by rationing mAb treatment and making determinations on which states should be allowed the “equitable use of the available supply“; a fancy term for “rationing” the life-saving treatment based on alignment with the political ideology of the government in control of it.
