DeSantis and Ladapo condemn suspension of COVID-19 antibody treatments

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo are condemning the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s decision Monday to halt distribution of antibody treatments that have become central to the state’s COVID response.

And DeSantis even teases about taking legal action.

Despite all previous federal government advice and warnings that these drugs do not work against the Omicron variant, DeSantis has made it a key part of the state’s response to COVID-19, defying the prevailing view of the national medical community.


Because of Monday’s FDA decision, appointments for more than 2,000 Floridians to receive the treatment were canceled Tuesday, the governor said. And all monoclonal antibody treatment centers have been closed, the health ministry said late Monday night.
