#2 It's hostage taking. Here in Florida, dems will blame DeSantis for whatever FedGov does to their loved ones, because that's all they got. Box wine auntie Bidet lover, when you are breathing your last in a hospital hallway because you don't fit the profile to go on a respirator in ICU, remember, you voted for it.

#53 Any competent state governor should know how to deal with this kind of rationing. Something along the lines of: "Our great state of X has so far administered X thousand doses of monoclonal antibodies to high risk newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients, with good results. Now we are not being supplied properly, by federal edict, to continue our good work. People of X, contact your congressional representatives and particularly the President if you want this bad situation corrected."

republican governor Ron DeSantis of Florida promoting the use of mAb and opening up dozens of treatment centers throughout his state.
Florida has been ahead of the pack and has done this since the first EUA for monoclonal antibodies was issued in Nov. 2020. Other states have failed abysmally to even provide the minimum of publicity and coordination to get the treatments available to those who could benefit from them. My own state health department didn't even answer my query about this.

It is bad to see an agent of influence loose his influence; Where did we go wrong in his training?
Oh, such a sorry sight, a disgrace; We told him to remove himself from this venue no more than a month ago, Not to bother the nice people here at RB. Now this, it is a disgrace, such vitriol. Our theory is the Covid shots have torn into his brain tissue, minor strokes, blood clots, his irrationalities, hallucinations, misplaced grandeur, omnipotence, loss of civility are signs of a mind off balance, and I am not sure if he will ever recover...

Making informed choices these days in light of the lack of knowledge, misinformation/disinformation, propaganda, political jockeying make decisions a risky crap shoot for the individual.
