BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The increase in usage of monoclonal antibodies has caused federal officials to place new limits on how much of them Alabama will get.
We’ve learned that state health officials and legislators are fighting to make sure the state gets as much as it needs.
The interesting twist is that there is no shortage of monoclonal antibodies of any kind nationwide.
As of this week, the more than 200 providers offering monoclonal antibodies will see a roughly 30 percent reduction in what they requested.
Which one of you Governors would like to have a basically-zero Covid rate? Which one of you would like to be the State with the lowest rate of coronavirus disease, a collapsed health-care burden (to near-zero) and a collapsed rate of death too.
How would you like to see this start to happen within two weeks and be so apparent every news stations has to report on it within a month?
It costs about $2 per person in a household.
It's simple: For anyone suspected (test results not back yet) you dispense to them five doses of Ivermectin to be taken every day if they are obese or otherwise morbid, and every second day if not along with one dose per every two days for everyone in the household, calibrated by their weight. Everyone in the household also gets ten days of a 1,000mg Vitamin C tablet and ten days of 30mg of Zinc, both dietary supplements. The exception is anyone on a blood thinner; you simply ask and, if they are, they don't get the drug (but do get the supplements.)
The State buys the drug in bulk, from India if you have to (fly a charter over there to pick it up; **** the Feds) and dispenses it.
Read the linked article. This is is not just about treatment; it is also about cutting off forward transmission of the virus. It will not work every time but it doesn't have to work every time -- just often enough to suppress Rt below 1.0 and the virus dies out.
The risk of someone having a serious adverse event from this is 1 in 600,000. If Florida has ten percent of their population that gets infected (or suspected to be) or is in a household with someone who is over the next three months (improbably high, but let's go with it) that would be a cost of about $5 million. For Alabama it would cost about a million. That's it.
Who's got the stones to do this?
Whoever does it first and collapses their Covid-19 case, hospitalization and death rate is President in 2024 -- that is, if the other 49 States don't have their residents lay siege to DC and their State governments as soon as they see the first State's results.
It won't work? Yes it will -- it did in a State in India too with over 200 million people.
Grow a set, governors. The Federal Government cannot prevent you from doing this.
