States With the Highest Infection Rates May Have Difficulty Securing Treatments.

Key Points

  • HHS is taking control of distribution for a popular COVID-19 therapy.
  • They will determine the amount each state can receive.
  • Southern states have the most COVID cases, but may not receive enough doses.

The Biden administration is seizing control of a life-saving COVID-19 treatment and deciding how much each state will receive. This is a drastic change from the previous method of distribution, where states could place orders directly from suppliers.

“HHS will determine the amount of product each state and territory receives on a weekly basis,” an HHS spokesman said. “State and territorial health departments will subsequently identify sites that will receive product and how much.” 

“This system will help maintain equitable distribution, both geographically and temporally, across the country, providing states and territories with consistent, fairly distributed supply over the coming weeks,” he added.

Sounds fair, but it isn’t.

The Biden administration is restricting access to monoclonal antibodies for states with the highest number of coronavirus cases and the lowest vaccination rates: Alabama, Florida, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia and Louisiana. 

According to Forbes, “These seven states…are facing some of the U.S.’s most severe Covid-19 outbreaks and have been utilizing about 70% of the nation’s distribution of monoclonal antibodies to help reduce hospitalizations in their already overburdened healthcare systems.”

So despite Biden’s previous promise to ramp up distribution of life-saving drugs and make them more readily available, he’s deciding to go the other way: buying up all the product and choking supply chains with needless bureaucratic red tape.

The new distribution model has many southern state officials concerned – and rightfully so.

“It is regrettable that the Biden administration would play politics with people’s lives during a pandemic, by withholding a life-saving treatment and providing mixed messages to Americans,” said a spokeswoman for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

“Alabama’s hospitals are full and under tremendous stress,” said Aruna Arora, president of the Alabama medical association. “That’s why physicians are very concerned about federal efforts that will end up limiting our supply and access to this effective treatment.”

This is just the latest “public health” overreach by Biden & Co.. It won’t be the last.
