Gov DeSantis SLAMS Biden's FDA for Abruptly Closing Florida's 'Lifesaving' Treatment Sites

SMG News Wire : Jan 25, 2022  ToddStarnes.com

"Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law. This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives..." -Gov Ron DeSantis

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cut off Florida's monoclonal antibody treatment sites Monday, citing the omicron variant, impacting more than 2,000 Floridians who had treatments scheduled Tuesday.

"Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law," DeSantis said in a statement.

"This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives," he added. "There are real-world implications to Biden's medical authoritarianism—Americans' access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president."

The Florida Department of Health said it was not given any advanced notice of the FDA's "abrupt" decision to pull the treatments that can prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death in high-risk patients who get COVID.

"As a result of the @US_FDA's abrupt decision to remove the EUAs for two monoclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibody treatment sites will be closed until further notice," it wrote. "Florida disagrees with the decision that blocks access to any available treatments in the absence of clinical evidence."

"Rather than giving Americans the option for various COVID treatments, the FDA and the Biden Administration issued their royal decree, taking away the very thing that is proven to reduce hospitalizations and save lives," said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. "Monoclonal antibody treatments like Regeneron have had a positive impact for thousands of Floridians. For the CDC and FDA, which have been consistently inconsistent throughout the entire pandemic, to restrict treatment does nothing but put individuals at risk."

"In our field of medicine, when someone comes to you seeking a treatment that could save their life, it is essential to have treatment options to ensure health care providers can make the best decisions for their patients," said Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. "The Federal Government has failed to adequately provide the United States with adequate outpatient treatment options for COVID-19. Now, they are scrambling to cover up a failure to deliver on a promise to ‘shut down the virus.'"

DeSantis has been an advocate for the treatments from Regeneron and Eli Lily, and he said last year that "come Hell or high water" he will fight to get them despite the Biden administration seizing the supply of Regeneron and cutting supply to Florida.

The FDA said it pulled the emergency use "because data shows these treatments are highly unlikely to be active against the omicron variant."

"Sick," Jack Posobiec, Human Events Daily host, tweeted along with the story.

"The FDA is trying to make it so that people in Florida die of Covid. They'll kill people to harm Republicans," Mike Cernovich tweeted. "Steel yourselves for the evil that is being unleashed."

New treatment sites were opened in the Sunshine State just last week. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
