#1 Vindictive murderous tyrant isn't he. Has been an ass ever since a bunch of people yelled at him the other day for the unnecessary death of 13 troops.

#3 Maybe DeSantis not as dumb as he appears. If he anticipated the Federales response to Florida's attempt to hog all the Covid monoclonals available in USA. Then he's in win-win situation.
On one hand the anti-vaccination fanatics are pleased (it's the fault of them child-eating Democrats), on the other hand Florida is not out
2100$ per monoclonal treatment.

p.s. According to the ibid article - there are only a few million doses of monoclonal antibodies available in USA.

#7 Either anything that might cause theoretically raise someone's possible likelihood to die of COVID is eeeeevil. Or it isn't. it doesn't seem difficult to see the political cast in there.

#8 p.s. Anybody told them that antibody treatment is known as "passive immunization"?

You're assuming this conflict is over Immunization vs. No Vaccines. I'm not going to stop taking tetanus shots (for example) just because I know people who got the Pfizer Shot and had heart attacks and stroke and _didn't end up in the VAERS_ database. I also still use antibiotics even though my mom's allergic to pennicillin.

Also, two million doses of this drug could mean two million people who don't have to go to the hospital.

The question you need to ask but haven't is, "why were they limiting this stuff from way back before the vaccines were available even though everyone can now see that it works on a large scale with noone growing hooves or anything or whatever story they're telling this week about ivermectin..."

#9 The last cat I was technically owned by was a stray that I fed on my farmlet in PeeAye. Tame as he was, he bit the hell out of me one day and my only intelligent choice was to get the rabies sequence. Not that big a deal, but I caged the cat and when he clearly was rabies free, I took him in and got him vaccinated. The PA giving me the rabies shots said "Well, at least you can go up against rabid animals for the next 18 months..."

I'm very pro vaccine. I'm also very pro "everyone gets to peel his own banana." It's that second thing that drives some people nuts.

They weren't limiting it "before the vaccines were available". Producing mAb is much more complicated process than producing mRNA antibodies. Takes a lot longer, and costs a lot more (thus, 2100$ per shot). Look up "Monoclonal Antibody" on wiki.
And the companies that produce it, more or less, stopped once vaccines become available - they didn't anticipate that the ideological conflict will produce demand for their product. After all, mAb as treatment is orders of magnitude inferior to vaccines.

#12 Do not underestimate Ron DeSantis. Biden doesn't. Biden will do anything he can to make life difficult for DeSantis and to make DeSantis look bad. That's because, if it isn't Trump, it's likely to be DeSantis carrying the ball for Republicans in 2024. This is presidential politics, down and dirty. Well, also, Biden and Falsie would be awfully embarrassed if Florida's hospitals were relieved of covid patients while New York and California continue to suffer.

#13 Bidet's handlers understand DeSantis is a threat. Bidet wouldn't know what or who Ron DeSantis is unless the Florida governor knocked Joe's ice cream cone out of his hand. And he'd forget it happened in a couple hours at most.

#15 OK, when I say Biden I mean whoever is telling him what to say and do. We all know he has precious little time between breakfast and his afternoon nap to think about DeSantis and 2024.

#18 They weren't limiting it "before the vaccines were available".

According to an ER doc who's been posting elsewhere, they were limiting its use as much as possible from when the EUA supposedly went into effect last October until about the first week of August.

#20 Update: from AoSHQ:
DeSantis pointed out that out of the people in Florida treated with monoclonal antibodies, more than 50% were vaccinated.

Not unvaccinated. Vaccinated. (This is both emphasis and a correction of my earlier typo.)

So the Biden Administration is attempting a show of force against the unvaccinated -- but it's the vaccinated, who are having breakthrough cases of covid due to the vaccines being, um, rather meh, who are using the bulk of the treatment.
