Joe Biden changed the rules suddenly in a way that’s hurting the people of Florida.
He’s withholding lifesaving treatment all in the name of “equity.”
Ron DeSantis hit Joe Biden hard for a disgraceful piece of revenge.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has decided to ration the life-saving Covid-19 treatment known as monoclonal antibodies.
Until recently hospitals and other health care centers took orders directly from manufacturers, and the U.S. Health and Human Services Department would just review large shipments to avoid stockpiling.
Then the U.S. Health and Human Services Department stepped in and decided that they would allocate which treatments the shipments are going to.
“Just seven states accounted for about 70 percent of our monoclonal antibody ordering. Given this reality, we must work to ensure our supply of these lifesaving therapies remains available for all states and territories, not just some,” the federal health services agency said in a statement.
Alabama, Florida, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia and Louisiana, all Republican states, were responsible for the bulk of the orders.
The Daily Caller reported that On Aug. 29, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) and HHS agreed to a distribution plan of 50,000 yet they’ve lowered the supply for the week of Sep. 13 would be just under 31,000 doses.
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said slamming President Joe Biden is creating a “huge disruption” in his state’s fight against Covid.
“We are very, very concerned with the Biden administration and the HHS’s recent abrupt sudden announcement that they are going to dramatically cut the number of monoclonal antibodies that are going to be sent to the State of Florida,” DeSantis said at a press conference Thursday. “Just last week on September 9th, president Joe Biden said that his administration would be increasing shipments of monoclonal antibodies in September by 50%, and yet on September 13th, HHS announced that it was seizing control of the monoclonal antibody supply and that it would control distribution. And then on September 14th, the announcement was more than 50% of the monoclonal antibodies that had been used in Florida were going to be reduced.”
“What the HHS and the Biden administration is now doing is they’re saying that all of the reduced amount will go to the state, and we’re responsible not only for sourcing our sites, which we’re happy to do, but any infusion center, any provider, any hospital will have to come through the state and to just spring this on us starting next week, we’re going to have to do that. There’s going to be a huge disruption and patients are going to suffer as a result of this.”
