JUST IN: DeSantis Touts ‘Early Treatment’ of COVID to ‘Reduce Hospital Admissions’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moved Monday to make it easier for residents afflicted with COVID-19 to receive alternative treatments including Regeneron and similar medication to fight the disease before hospitalization.

“Early treatment with these monoclonal antibodies, Regeneron and others, have proven to radically reduce the chance that somebody ends up being hospitalized. And at the end of the day, reducing hospital admissions has got to be a top priority,” said DeSantis.

The Florida Governor went viral on social media earlier this month when he told President Biden to focus on the border instead of Florida’s efforts to combat the contagion.

Speaking at an event in Panama City, DeSantis ripped into Biden for nearly five minutes.

“This is a guy who ran for president saying he was gonna ‘shut down the virus.’ And what has he done?” DeSantis asked. “He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide-open southern border.”

“I can tell you, whatever variants are around the world, they’re coming across that southern border,” the governor added. “And so, he’s not shutting down the virus, he’s helping to facilitate it in our country.”
