Biden Administration Moves to Take Over Monoclonal Antibody Distribution

Biden Administration Moves to Take Over Monoclonal Antibody Distribution

I have concerns.

Legal Insurrection fans will note that I have often asserted that more focus should be given to developing treatments for COVID-19 options and making them readily available to the public. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been doing just that, by opening monoclonal antibody treatment centers.

Initially, DeSantis was slammed for this approach, but the media may have to backtrack on the attacks. It turns out the godlet of COVID, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has deemed the treatment effective.

After Biden spent a good portion of his 6-prong COVID plan deriding DeSantis (albeit not by name), his administration is now moving to take over monoclonal antibody distribution across the county.

The US government is buying more doses of monoclonal antibody treatments for Covid-19, and the Biden administration is taking over distribution in order to avoid shortages of the key therapeutics.

The moves come as demand for monoclonal antibodies has increased as cases surged due to spread of the Delta variant and low vaccination rates in some areas of the country.

Monoclonal antibodies are lab-engineered immune system proteins that kickstart an immune response against an infection. The US Department of Health and Human Services says that as of September 10, 2.17 million doses of monoclonal antibodies have been shipped to all sites, and 938,000 doses have been used since December. About 43% of the distributed doses have been used as of September 3.

An HHS spokesperson said seven states have accounted for 70% of orders for the therapy. Those seven states are Florida, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana.

“Given this reality, we must work to ensure our supply of these life-saving therapies remains available for all states and territories, not just some,” the HHS spokesperson said.

I have concerns. My chief problem is that the states that have embraced the treatment approach are red. I am worried that the new distribution plan might be weighted against such regions.

I am not the only one, either.

That move by President Biden triggered fears over the feds limiting supply of the therapy, according to a statement issued by DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw.

“It appears the Biden Administration is already breaking this crucial promise, by moving forward with new restrictions on the supply of monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida…We are working to ensure that the supply of monoclonal antibody treatment in Florida remains adequate to meet the needs of patients in our state,” she said.

In Florida, a private company called CourMed, has launched a “concierge” service that conveniently offers home delivery of the treatment, administered by nurses.

Derrick Miles, CourMed’s founder and CEO, said in an email to the Phoenix that he’s concerned about shortages but the company “can still provide our concierge service of monoclonal antibody infusion therapy in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties until supplies run out.”

Furthermore, the Biden administration does not have a good track record of success on any issue. There are already reports that people are being turned away for treatment.

In Texas, the Department of State Health Services alerted monoclonal antibody providers of HHS’s warning that “the national supply has considerably decreased and states should expect lower amounts of therapeutics available for shipment in the coming weeks,” according to Chris Van Deusen, a spokesman for the state health department.

In Tennessee, Bill Christian, a health department spokesman, said in an email that some people have been turned away because of delays in receiving shipments of the medication.

“HHS is reviewing all orders and as a result, facilities cannot anticipate shipments for scheduling patients. Instead, patients are being turned away, and appointments are canceled due to a lack of clarity on when treatment will be available,” Christian wrote.

In Mississippi, a state department of health spokeswoman said in an email that the state already allocates its medication based on how much each site is using and has enough on hand for now.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Thursday:

“Just seven states are making up 70 percent of the orders. Our supply is not unlimited and we believe it should be equitable across states,” Psaki said.

“I think our role as the government overseeing the entire country is to be equitable in how we distribute. We’re not going to give a greater percentage to Florida over Oklahoma,” she said.

Can I believe that Biden would act to undercut a successful, younger rival and arrange a new “needs test” based on political rather than public health issues? Do I believe that the occupant of the White House could completely discount the potential adverse impact of this move on millions of Red State Americans?

This is why big government is always a bad idea. Jefferson was correct.

It’s good to hear that the Biden Administration is assuming monopoly power over distribution of yet another COVID treatment.

Monoclonal antibodies, gasoline prices, mask and lockdown policies, energy network security, inflation, educational mandates, immigration, meat supplies, waging war, pipeline infrastructure, firearms bureau directors, stadium policies… is there anything this administration can’t do, effectively and non-controversially?

When you hear the words equity or equitable you’re hearing Marxism.
It should should set off a buzzer in your mind.

    It does, it absolutely does!

    Equity: the system in which, if you are to tall, the gov’t cuts off your feet until it is “equitable”

      UserP in reply to Voyager. | September 17, 2021 at 2:46 pm

      Equity is when you have two workers and they both make $10,000. One worker saves $1,000 and the other spends it all, at the end of the year the one who saved gives half of his savings to the one who saved nothing.

      But that’s not all. If one worker doesn’t like the job and quits the other worker must give him half of his salary.

Pissaki calls it “our supply” like it belongs to Biden and the government. That’s rich. That’s like her say, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Everything DC does is guided by “their good intentions. What are the results of the decisions being made by DC?

By setting conditions, DC decides who gets to keep their job. Now DC is effecting who gets medical treatment.

And if you believe their meddling has reached its zenith and no further decisions about how we live will occur – guess again.

They can still issue decree about housing, grocery shopping and much more.

Remember – the Federal government gets to decide who is a good citizen and who is an insurrectionist.

Just in case you were wondering – More Americans have died of Covid19 since Biden was elected than during the entire Trump presidency before the election.

Biden: 425,705

Trump: 233,631

covid deaths 2020 – 2021.1.20 in the US was approx 413k
post 2021.1.20 covid deaths are approx 250k.

    And, Covid19 Deaths were declining when Trump left office.
    They are increasing now.

      Joe-dallas in reply to MattMusson. | September 17, 2021 at 1:54 pm

      Matt – I dont like sticking politics into a discussion where politics doesnt belong.

      Each of the covid waves are following the typical gohmetz curve. covid deaths were on the back side of the gohmetz curve when Trump left office, We are currently on the front side of the Gohmetz curve which explains the increasing rate of death.

      As bad as Biden is, there is virtually nothing man can do to control mother nature.

      See my comment below about the southern states (red states) having much greater surges in the summer while the northern (blue states) states are having much lower cases this summer. That is due to well known pandemic history documented by Edgar Hopes Simpson. It doesnt matter who is governor of any of the southern states, They are going to be hit harder during the summer months.

        Screw off. BIDEN and the Democrats made it political.

        Literally 90% of their campaign was that Trump was failing and that Biden ‘had a plan’ that would ‘follow the science’.

        THEY ARE THE ONES that claimed that Trump was failing and that they would do better. Demonstrating that the Democrats are disgusting liars who had no plan and are objectively having worse results is absolutely on the table and is not ‘sticking politics into a discussion where politics doesn’t belong’.

        “As bad as Biden is, there is virtually nothing man can do to control mother nature.”

        No, the bad part specifically arises from him promising that nature will capitulate to him if we allow him to screw us out of our liberties.

the southern states using 70% of the Monoclonal antibodies. should be expected at this point in time.

The Hopes Simpson curve (well establish medical history of pandemics since the 1960’s) shows that the southern states should be having a summer surge while the northern states should have much lower level of infections during the summer. Northern states should have 90% of their infections during the 3 winter months.

    The fact that this virus survives heat and humidity like it does is uncharacteristic of Corona viruses. Was it modified to do so?

Because it’s effective in the treatment of Covid and not enough people who oppose The Regime are dying from Covid in red states like Florida.

The Regime is evil. The evidence is everywhere.

You can see how this is going to end up. States with older citizens (thus more at risk) are going to be denied access to the treatments because Biden is going to hold back stock for States with younger aged citizens on average…even though those Statee have no pressing need for the treatment.

And this will be done in the name of equity.

If this does not make sense from the perspective of health (it doesn’t), then one is applying the wrong framework for analysis. Try the “totalitarian control” framework and this all fits nicely.

An underlying assumption that still surprises many is that Marxists lie. Always. Take the red pill and you can see that truth is the exception (somewhat rare) in the context of government. And, I do not think I am sufficiently cynical.

So, if the Biden Administration holds the supply, then they can hold it hostage.

You will be made to pay the wages of the sin of slavery.

Penalize states for an issue reconciled 150 years ago.

The only word you need to know is “TAKEOVER.”

That’s the agenda. That’s the goal. That’s the plan. Everything is right on schedule.

I guess Florida wasn’t keeping up on their required death rate, so here come Team Biden to make sure they fill their quota.

1..Global warming (man caused) = too many people on the planet.
. Solution.: reduce number of people
a. global pandemic.
a.1. problem:
too many smart people that can find a way to survive.
solution: Mandate that they ALL take a death shot and restrict
medication.
a.2 problem:
they refuse and they are armed.
solution: Starve them out. Don’t allow anyone to sell them
supplies. Restrict their movement.

Simply put:

Give it up DeSantis, or Floridians die!

“Given this reality, we must work to ensure our supply of these life-saving therapies remains available for all states and territories, not just some,” the HHS spokesperson said.

Life-saving, what an excellent choice of words.

The HHS spokesperson is thus confirming that this is an effective treatment, which thereby negates the emergency authorization for the vaccines because an emergency authorization can only be in place where an effective treatment does not exist.

The sheer, blatant irrationality of our COVID policy at the Federal level and in some of the States makes the “conspiracy theorists” sound reasonable.

In government, when policy goes irrational, it’s time to start looking for bribes. And we know how Joe regards bribes.

Joe’s handlers hate us; they really hate us.

China is the largest global supplier of the active ingredients and chemical building blocks needed to make many prescription drugs, over the counter products, and vitamins. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is inspecting only a small number of the Chinese companies that manufacture U.S. drugs, and those it does inspect are often found to have serious health violations. Meanwhile, the drugs that are making their way into the United States from China, either as finished products or as ingredients, are often falling far below U.S. safety standards. And some of these drugs are not being inspected at all. Ever wonder how many people who have the China WuFlu created coronavirus (19th version) similar to the flu, took their flu shots which was manufactured with Chinese ingredients? China’s secret ploy to weaken its enemies? BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: China Releases Video Targeting TGP Contributor Lawrence Sellin, PhD, Due to His Work Uncovering the Role of China’s Military in the COVID-19 Crisis (VIDEO) (thegatewaypundit.com) When a trading partner has been exposed with its nefarious activities, actions, lies, and behavior, the trust between the partners has been compromised and China has ruined their reputation. NOW THE BIG QUESTION is why should we trust a drug Made by China who has nefarious intentions, with the cure of the drug they infected the US/World to start with??? First responders including the military will be treated first. Should they all become sick and/or die, the US will have a difficult time to respond to China who wants to destroy the US. Look no farther than the evil people who stand to get wealthy with this cure or destruction….. George Soros, Bill Gates, Dr. “Fauxci” , Clintons, etc. These rat bastards took Beijing’s dollars and then parroted the Chinese Communist Party line on a whole host of issues. Something is not right here and needs closer examination!

QUARANTINE IS WHEN YOU RESTRICT THE SICK!!!!!……..TYRANNY IS WHEN YOU RESTRICT THE HEALTHY!!!!!!.

I voted against mandatory seat belt laws. Seem to lose everytime I say No More Big Government. But it’s a habit to tell them get out of my life.
But the people keep wanting more and more. Until they find out the cost they’re going to pay. Which will be too late.
You may have noticed biden* hasn’t apologized for one single screw up. He doesn’t think he’s screwing up, he’s following the communist agenda and it’s working just fine in his opinion.

When doses go unused while a resident of Florida dies from lack of treatment, who is charged? Negligent homicide? Manslaughter? What?
