How evil do you have to be to suddenly pull treatment from ailing Florida COVID patients? – American Thinker

How evil do you have to be to suddenly pull treatment from ailing Florida COVID patients?

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that it is closing all monoclonal antibody treatment sites in the state after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration rescinded emergency-use authorizations for two particular treatments for COVID-19.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 FDA announced on Monday that it is no longer permitting the use of bamlanivimab and etesevimab (used together) as well as the combination of casirivimab and imdevimab known as REGEN-COV, or Regeneron.

“Unfortunately, as a result of this abrupt decision made by the federal government, all monoclonal antibody state sites will be closed until further notice,” the Florida Department of Health said in a statement.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has spoken out about this outrage, which stinks to high heaven:

“Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law,” DeSantis said in a statement. “This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives. There are real-world implications to Biden’s medical authoritarianism — Americans’ access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president.”

No clinical data.  A sudden yanking, with zero time for patients to make alternate treatment arrangements.  A bizarre claim that the treatments don’t work, despite Florida’s record of success.  A death sentence to many.

New York is Using Race to Determine Access to a Limited Supply of Life-Saving COVID Treatments

Monoclonal Antibody Treatments Save Lives,” announcedthe New York City Department of Health in an October 26 public notice. These treatments “are available and lifesaving,” the agency said, noting that they “have averted at least 1,100 hospitalizations and at least 500 deaths among people treated in New York City.” The agency urged the public to seek out these monoclonal antibody treatments as soon as possible: “When given early after symptom onset, mAb treatments can decrease the risk of hospitalization and death due to COVID-19, which is why it is crucial to get tested for COVID-19 as soon as symptoms begin – the sooner someone is tested, the sooner treatment can begin.”

The city’s health agency quoted its own Health Commissioner Dr. Dave A. Chokshi: “the science shows that monoclonal antibody treatments work and can make all the difference when it comes to the severity of COVID-19 illness.” It thus urged that “treatment should be given as soon as possible after someone tests positive for COVID-19.” Studies from Pfizer, cited by the agency, independently demonstrated just how effective the company’s antiviral treatment, called Paxlovid, can be: it “decreased Covid-19-linked hospitalisation or mortality risk from any cause by 88%.”

New York City Department of Health Press Release, Oct. 26, 2021

But with the Omicron variant now the dominant COVID strain in New York, both the city and state are facing severe shortages in the availability of effective antiviral monoclonal treatments. While Pfizer claimed its antiviral treatment would work against Omicron, the New York State Department of Health issued a memo to all health care providers this week warning that “Sotrovimab (Xevudy) is the only authorized monoclonal antibody product expected to be effective against the omicron variant.” Yet due to “a significant surge in cases and reduced effectiveness of existing therapeutics due to the omicron variant,” the agency warned that “supplies of oral antivirals will be extremely limited initially.” As of this week, the agency also said the same of its monoclonal antibody treatment: “supplies of Sotrovimab are extremely limited.”

Florida Governor DeSantis Pulls the Rug Out from Under the False Covid Narrative – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on August 24, 2021

Is this the reason the FDA is suddenly starting to approve “vaccines”?

By false assertion of “public health authorities”— read shills for Big Pharma—there are no cures.  But President Trump was cured by one—monoclonal antibodies.  As of August 21, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis has opened 15 monoclonal antibody clinics in Florida with more opening this week.

The minute the first Covid case appeared the US Medical Establishment began lying through its teeth and is yet to utter one truthful word.  

The entire big money vaccination campaign is based on the lie that there are no cures.  The asserted absence of cures is the only reason for the emergency use of an untested and unapproved experimental vaccine.  The use of HCQ and Ivermectin has been prevented by protocols established by NIH, CDC, and WHO.  

By false assertion of “public health authorities”— read shills for Big Pharma—there are no cures.  But President Trump was cured by one—monoclonal antibodies.  As of August 21, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis has opened 15 monoclonal antibody clinics in Florida with more opening this week.  https://www.theepochtimes.com/15-monoclonal-antibody-sites-to-be-operational-in-florida-by-weekend_3956497.html 

As evidence of cures pours in, the justification for emergency use of the experimental Covid Vaccine disappears.  The panicked medical establishment with its imposed and false protocols is demanding full approval of the vaccine before the required testing is complete and despite the obvious failure of the vaccine.  Otherwise, the vaccination marketing campaign grinds to a stop, leaving the secret agendas unserved.

We can’t have that, so the dangerous experimental vaccine must be approved so it can continue to be mandated and the secret health-unrelated agendas served.

By exposing the Covid Deception, DeSantis has painted a target on his back. A corrupt medical establishment, so determined to vaccinate all and follow up with endless booster shots that it denied sick and dying people known cures and fired and took away licenses of doctors who used the known cures to save lives, is not going to take lightly their exposure as frauds by DeSantis.  Expect any day to have the presstitute scum at the Washington Post, NPR, or CNN produce women accusing DeSantis of sexual abuse, or the crazed New York Times to accuse DeSantis of being a Russian agent and working with Cuba to discredit the CDC and NIH, or the FBI to bring false corruption charges, or Democrats in the state legislature to open an investigation of misappropriation of funds.  The American Establishment has ZERO tolerance for truth-tellers and for anyone who gets in the way of its self-serving agendas.

Are Floridians intelligent enough to protect their governor who kept their state open and free? Probably not.
