In red type, with a flaming masked skull, Ace, Biden Administration Slashes Florida's Supplies of Monoclonal Antibodies To Punish State for Lower-Than-Average Vaccination Rate
Now they've proceeded to the "take affirmative actions to literally murder those who do not follow orders" phase.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ripped the Biden administration's decision to take control of the distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID-19 -- replacing the system under which several Republican states, including his, took up most of the supply.In other words, she's taking it from red states that actually need the treatment right now in order to stockpile it for blue states which might need it in the future. . . .
The US Department of Health and Human Services announced Monday that it has "transitioned from a direct ordering process to a state/territory-coordinated distribution system," saying the change will provide "health departments maximum flexibility to get these critical drugs where they are needed most."
Seven Southern states -- including Florida -- took up 70 percent of the orders of monoclonal antibodies in early September, according to Politico. As a result, the Biden administration reallocated some 158,000 doses this week.
Jen Psaki on Thursday said the federal government has to look at the nationwide picture after the HSS said it was acting to ensure availability for current and future patients.

Therapeutics – Announces Monoclonal Antibody Purchases Directly From Glaxo
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded directly to the White House effort to kill Florida residents by withholding previously agreed shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies.
During a press conference earlier today, Governor DeSantis outlined the issues Florida is facing after the Biden administration instructed the federal offices of HHS to punish the successful therapy and recovery efforts of the sunshine state healthcare system. DeSantis outlines the purchase agreement that Biden intentionally violated and also the issues created by the federal government now blocking direct purchasing of treatment from the manufacturer.
Additionally, DeSantis noted he has held meetings with ¹GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to purchase mAb shipments directly from the second source manufacturer in order to work around the roadblocks being presented by the Biden administration. DeSantis reaffirmed his commitment to stand in the way, and not allow Joe Biden to kill Americans just because he doesn’t like their politics.
So, right now, the warm southern states (say Texas and Florida) are still in air conditioning season, which means most socializing takes place indoors, the perfect setup for the WuFlu, while the weather is tolerable in the N, NE and NW, thus most socializing takes place outdoors. In a few short months the situations will be reversed, southern states will be socializing outdoors again, and northerners will be huddling together inside with wine and cheese, and whatever variant we have at that time will be bedeviling them. It's a seasonal virus, and the seasons have different properties in different states.
If and when that happens, will the Biden administration withhold monoclonal antibodies from New York, Massachusetts and Illinois to put them on the shelf in Texas and Florida in the name of "equity"? Count me skeptical.
I've also read (however I have no proof) that Florida ranks 18 out of 50 for states vaccination rates.ReplyDelete
If true so much for doing this because of low vaccination rates.
also, vaccination rate are not closely tied to death rates:
Of course, a lot of that happened before Trump gave us the vaccine.
