Feds, which are ‘scarce’ with distribution of monoclonal antibodies, ‘lead to human death’

On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s ‘Hannity’, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said the federal government has not provided Florida with the monoclonal antibody treatments it needs and governors cannot obtain supplies on their own because of the federal government. Taking control of the supply and lack of monoclonal antibody treatments “absolutely leads to people dying.”

DeSantis stated, [relevant remarks begin around 2:15] “I think with the monoclonals, it’s definitely leading to people dying. Because we saw when we went to our sites this summer in Florida to deal with the Delta wave, we kept tens of thousands of people out of the hospital. We saved thousands of lives by giving it treatment. So it should have been replicated in all these other states, but instead of what Biden and his comrades have done, they have taken control of all the monoclonal antibodies. So yes, then we were in a pinch, I bought some myself. None of the governors are now able to do that because the federal authorities have taken control. So we are in a situation where we have now asked for 40,000 more every week. “Because I have people I could help, and they stick to it, and they do not distribute it the way we need it to be distributed.”

He added that the federal government has sent Florida “some, but they do not give us as much as we need. So we have built an infrastructure in Florida, and Sean, we could scale up to two to three times the number of treatments that they send us and we could make them readily available.We have asked them to do that.We have sites that will be turned on, additional sites, within less than 24 hours if they send us the medicine.So “We ask them to send it to us, we know it will help people. And the thing is, they’ve had a lot of time to plan this wave.”

DeSantis concluded, “I think they may not have bought enough, and I think that’s probably the root of why they’re so scarce.”
