This just in, the Biden Administration has reduced the antibodies therapy shipment to Florida from 30,000 antibodies doses, to 15,000.
Of course, this was bound to happen as the federal government has bought up all of the supply of the lifesaving monoclonal antibodies treatment and now has complete control over it, distributing it to states as they see fit.
And for quite some time now, it appears as though the Biden Administration is playing favorites. Not letting Florida have the dosages they need to support the demand.
Instead of keeping a stranglehold on monoclonal antibodies, the federal government must release its stockpiles to states who want them and allow states to purchase these medications directly. pic.twitter.com/TVPUFxMLUT

Watch as Ron DeSantis puts the White House on the spot in his message to them today on Fox News:
The federal government’s failure to focus on COVID therapeutics nationwide has cost many lives.
Here in Florida, we will continue to emphasize the importance of effective therapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies. pic.twitter.com/Fb3NbOA89k

The administration claims it is only trying to be fair, to conserve the treatments for other states that need it too, but why give more to states like New York, then?
@GovRonDeSantis is amazing! Not waiting 4 the Federal Government to care for Floridians. Bringing to light the game the Biden administration is playing with lives refusing the request for more monoclonal antibodies to Florida (huge elderly pop.) and giving 3 times as many to NYC.

The Epoch Times has more on the story:
The federal government slashed in half the number of doses of the monoclonal antibodies therapy shipped to Florida from 30,000 to 15,000 this week, according to Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).
DeSantis said the 15,000 dozen received would be “immediately utilized to support new monoclonal antibody sites.”
“But for the federal government’s decision to restrict supply of monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida, my administration would have already opened additional monoclonal antibody treatment sites throughout the state,” DeSantis said in a press release.
The governor said that before the Biden administration “seized control of the monoclonal supply” Florida was administering 30,000 doses per week to infected patients. The treatment saved “countless lives,” he said.
This is ridiculous and the Biden Administration has taken it way too far, as they are allowing political beliefs to get in the way of life saving treatment.
Here are some of the reactions to this news:
Biden’s administration is also responsible for withholding monoclonal antibodies from Florida in a direct attempt to hurt DeSantis. How many bodies is it worth to hurt a political opponent Mr Biden?

Trump,🍊🍊🍊, would have never allowed the country to run out of monoclonal antibodies to treat Covid. Biden and his progressive handlers did.

There is no shortage of monoclonal antibodies. Biden is just rationing a life-saving therapy for "politics."

My prediction: when the dirty secrets and information behind the vaccine is released and the public is in uproar over the side effects, the administration will release any and all restriction of antibody treatments to try to “swoop in” and be the hero.
But for now, I think the monoclonal treatment is a carrot on a stick for states that are not enforcing unconstitutional vaccine mandates and the Biden administration is going to milk it for all it is worth.
