Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said a monoclonal antibody treatment that’s yielded success “even stronger than Regeneron” is coming to Florida as the federal government cuts the supply of the other COVID-19 treatment.
DeSantis made the announcement Thursday at the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County.
The governor said he’s secured doses of Sotrovimab, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and Vir Biotechnology, Inc. as the state faces a decline in its Regeneron supply, the brand of monoclonal antibodies the state has been relying on to operate its state-run treatment centers.
DeSantis said he initially thought the Biden administration would be supplying additional infusions.
