President Joe Biden was just blasted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over playing politics with peoples’ lives.
“We set up 25 different sites throughout the state telling people that early treatment saves lives,” DeSantis said during a recent interview. “What we were seeing is when we have the Delta surge, most of the people being admitted to the hospital not only didn’t get monoclonal antibodies, they didn’t even know about monoclonal antibodies.”
DeSantis discussed the results of the antibodies explaining the positive outcomes.
“This is not something that people like Fauci were talking about,” said the Governor. “So we helped raise the profile and also expand access. The results are the statewide hospital census for COVID patients has gone down 34 days in a row. Our hospital admissions on a daily basis have gone down about 75%.”
But then DeSantis dropped the bombshell claiming that Biden pulled the treatment once results showed it was working:
Here’s the thing, when it’s apparent that it works, that is on the Biden administration decided to take from Florida and to cut our allotment. So what we had to do— and the reason is they control all the Regeneron, they had a deal with them, so they dramatically cut our supply. So what we did — we did a deal with GlaxoSmithKline, who also has an effective monoclonal antibody. So we now have that in the state of Florida. Our message to Floridians is we want to get you the treatment you need. Biden doesn’t want to give it to you, but I’m going to come hell, or high water do whatever I can to get it for you.
