Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been touring the state during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. But instead of focusing on the most effective ways the CDC says we have to reign in the spread of the coronavirus — widespread vaccinations and universal masking — the governor is focusing on a treatment for COVID-19 symptoms that works best on patients that have recently contracted the virus.

It’s a monoclonal antibody treatment known as Regeneron. And DeSantis’ top donor is invested in the company that makes it.

According to an August 24 press release from the Florida governor’s office, “Monoclonal antibody treatments can be prescribed by health care providers to individuals 12 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe illness and hospitalization. However, at Governor DeSantis’ direction, there is currently a standing order in Florida signed by the State Surgeon General that allows patients to receive this treatment without a prescription or referral if administered by an eligible health care provider. Such referrals are not required at any of the State of Florida monoclonal antibody treatment sites and treatments are available at no cost to patients.

“The antibodies help the immune system recognize and respond effectively to the virus. According to the treatment guidelines, they should be administered as soon as possible after diagnosis. By providing access to these treatments at these new sites, Governor DeSantis is alleviating demand on hospital resources and further making sure that Floridians have access to all potential treatments that can help them recover from COVID-19.”

The governor’s office also says, “Governor DeSantis and the Florida Department of Health continue to encourage Floridians to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Find out where the vaccine is offered HERE.”
