While I still hate DeSantis, on principle, I have to admit that he seems to work hard for his constituents.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has added another tool to the state's COVID-19 arsenal—a monoclonal antibody therapy that can prevent COVID-19 infection before a person is exposed, which the state has purchased.

Vaccines and booster doses are a person's best chance at preventing COVID-19 and are known to reduce the risk someone gets seriously ill. However, some people cannot get vaccinated because of serious adverse reactions or who get vaccinated and don't develop an adequate immune response and the new monoclonal antibody therapy could help give them added protection.

Evusheld, a two-dose antibody therapy, has shown in clinical trials to reduce a person's risk of being infected with COVID-19 by up to 77 percent.

The FDA authorized Evusheld on December 8 and DeSantis announced on Friday that the state secured over 3,000 doses of it.  

"This is a positive development that will really serve a valuable purpose for those who do need some additional help," DeSantis said on Friday.

I read a while back that one of his biggest campaign donors had a huge stake in the company that makes the antibody

That wouldn't surprise me. Cons usually fall into two categories: religious trailer trash and white-collar criminals.

I thought I remembered... I rarely take the time to look shit like this up because I know it'll be ignored by those who don't like the truth, but this was easy :

 

DeSantis top donor invests in COVID drug governor promotes

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — who has been criticized for opposing mask mandates and vaccine passports — is now touting a COVID-19 antibody treatment in which a top donor’s company has invested millions of dollars.

DeSantis has been flying around the state promoting a monoclonal antibody treatment sold by Regeneron, which was used on then-President Donald Trump after he tested positive for COVID-19. The governor first began talking about it as a treatment last year.

Citadel, a Chicago-based hedge fund, has $15.9 million in shares of Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc., according to filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Citadel CEO Ken Griffin has donated $10.75 million to a political committee that supports DeSantis — $5.75 million in 2018 and $5 million last April.

MIAMI BEACH — Miami Beach police have released body cam footage and photos from an incident last month involving former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, two men and three baggies of crystal meth found inside their Miami Beach hotel room.

DeSantis needs to understand that 3000 doses is inadequate to any purpose. DeSantis is a nutcase. A wannabe Trump with the voice of a cartoon duck.

Did you really vote for Gillum?

He was a better choice than DeSantis.

He was not a user of drugs when he was runnng for office, and if he had been governor, the incident you refer to would never have occurred.

DeSantis is wrecking our state by ignoring Global Climate Change in the state most threatened by it.

I'm not sure what the goal here would be.   3,000 doses of a preventative medicine?   Other than maybe immunocompromised people in a rest home setting, I can't see who you would distribute them to.

You don't have to worry about people like Onassis wanting the medicine, they'd rather have Dr. Gillum's Root Juice.

DeSantis is genuinely all about representing his constituents to the best of his ability.
