DeSantis Launches Monoclonal Antibody Rapid Response Teams to Prevent Hospital Overcrowding

JANNIS FALKENSTERN, writing for the Epoch Times.com reports:
 
PUNTA GORDA, Fla.—Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Aug. 12 that he is launching a Rapid Response Team to dispense monoclonal antibodies to tackle Florida’s rising number of COVID-19 cases and reduce serious symptoms, preventing the potential for hospital overcrowding.

“This is probably the best thing that we can do to reduce the number of people that require hospitalization,” DeSantis said at a news conference in Jacksonville, adding that vaccines were strongly encouraged and were effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths by at least 70 percent.

Clear benefits to this early treatment is keeping people out of the hospital and reducing mortality,” he said.

DeSantis noted the experimental monoclonal antibodies developed by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals were used by President Donald Trump after he contracted the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19, in October 2020. Trump recovered in a matter of days.

A study released in April showed Regeneron’s antibody cocktail helped people recover faster after falling ill, and when given in the early stages, could prevent people from becoming sick with the virus.

Monoclonal antibody treatment is not well known, according to the governor, because it received federal emergency use authorization around the same time as the vaccines were being approved, and that the “focus rightfully was on vaccines at the time.” He said he felt that it was important to utilize this treatment alongside vaccines, and it was, in his opinion, “the most effective yet for people who are already infected.”

For seniors—the most vulnerable population in Florida—Gov. DeSantis said he would be initiating “strike teams” to enter nursing homes that had had an outbreak and perform the antibody treatment on those who were exposed to COVID-19 to stop the spread.

He also said the state’s surgeon general, Dr. Scott Rivkees, will issue an order to make certain sites available to people who meet certain criteria where they won’t need a doctor’s prescription. Anyone is eligible, especially those in high-risk categories such as the elderly and those with diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and other preexisting conditions.

The rise in case numbers has alarmed many around the state, including public school officials, who are encouraging the use of masks and social distancing. DeSantis said as the seasons change, “waves” in COVID-19 cases will ebb and flow.

“Waves are something we have to deal with; waves are not uniform,” DeSantis said at the press conference. “Personal mitigation is a personal choice. COVID is not going to go away and early treatment is the most effective we can do.”

Dr. Kenneth Scheppke, chief medical officer for the Florida Department of Emergency Management, also spoke at the press conference, urging Floridians to take advantage of the governor’s latest initiative.

“These monoclonal antibody therapy sites will expand access to proven effective COVID-19 treatment,” Scheppke said. “The treatment reduces severe illness, hospitalization, and death risk by 70 percent, and reduces the odds of household contacts developing COVID-19 by 82 percent. Monoclonal antibody therapy helps prevent the COVID-19 virus from attaching to human cells, and is effective against variants of concern, including the Delta variant.”

DeSantis told the group at the press conference that he would like to get ahead of the virus as to keep the COVID infection rate down.

“You can approach it on the front end by protecting yourself,” he said. “But, of course, if you end up in a situation where you are infected and at high risk, getting in here early, this is the best shot we’ve got right now to keep people out of the hospital and keep them safe.”

Dr Peter McCullough is speaking out giving important information on Ivermectin also. Thank you for this useful information! Please research Dr. Robert Malone, he is the inventor of the mRNA and his information is highly important!!!

I am glad they found some that seems to work. The biggest thing about the monoclonal antibodies is that they are experimental. They are being used under the EUA. Which once again means we have no idea what the possible long term effects are.
How much does this monoclonal antibodies cost per treatment?
How about something that has been approved for other things, Ivermectin that has shown to work in many other countries and in the areas in the USA where the doctors are willing to use it. We know the cost of that is very low.

One of several Republican Governors who know what they are doing. I am sure the fraud Fauchie is not happy with this.
