Let them drink bleach.

But if their were mobile vaccine teams, he would be yelling about government over reach.

Isn't going to your nearest CVS and getting and getting a couple of free shots a whole lot easier? Maybe he could tell his constituents about this.

CNN!!  That bastion of unbiased journalism. Lol.

...so where's the obvious payoff for DeathSantis in all of this - someone is greasing his palm.

No, no. Too complicated. And really who's gonna pay for it all? Mexico?

Republicans will always do the wrong thing, even when it's more work.

Some farker was linking him the regeneron a long term covid drug. Maybe Ron wants to get rich on the long haulers

Why isn't he deploying a rapid hydroxychloroquine response?

/strange
 
2021-08-12 9:36:46 PM  
That's... that's not even a pound of cure
 
2021-08-12 9:38:15 PM  
An ideal solution would be implemented at every level - mask mandates, vaccination campaigns, easily accessible testing everywhere, a small army of contract tracers, a fund to pay anyone stuck in quarantine... and for those who get it in spite of all of that, well-stocked hospitals with an array of treatment options.

So, investing in improving hospital survival rates isn't actually a bad tactic as part of an overarching strategy to combat this thing. Using it as your ONLY tactic is pants-on-head stupid of course, but at least this will -slightly- lower coming body count.

Pffft cure ?  The real money's in treatment.

Does anyone really believe that this guy is running the state. and not that orange moron in Mar-A-Lago?

I was hoping for SWAT teams shooting vaccine darts into anyone on the street without a mask on.
 
2021-08-12 9:42:47 PM  
Well, everyone is eligible for the vaccine, but I'm sure these treatments will be reserved for the "right people".
 
2021-08-12 9:43:23 PM  
Nobody tell them they're not fully FDA approved, though.  Just like the vaccines, they've only got emergency-use approval.  We wouldn't want anyone avoiding a life-saving treatment.

Definitely don't point out that they're literally harvested from the blood of people who have been infected with COVID.
 
2021-08-12 9:43:55 PM  
And who, pray tell, is going to pay Regeneron to provide those antibody treatment drugs and the healthcare professionals who administer them? More federal funds paying for the incompetence of Ron Deathsantis?
 
2021-08-12 9:44:41 PM  
*YAWN* I only went here to comment that I no longer read anything about COVID. There are too many idiots who make a big deal about the vaccine being "unapproved" and some of them say it's "poison." I am not interested and I am not concerned. I have done what I think I should have done, getting vaccinated, and I do not need to read about idiots.

/Unless they let their cat drive their car...

Q says DeSantis has mobile home parks full of gorks milked for their plasma and sold to Regeneron.  Don't let on you know this its on the down low for now.

Obviously DeSantis or one of his masters is heavily invested in this "treatment"
 
2021-08-12 9:47:42 PM  
Government doesn't work, if you put a Republican in charge of anything that requires a well thought out plan.

Regeneron (NASDAQ: REGN) stock. I think the whole thing with Trump and the Regeneron was such an obvious pump-and-pump that even the usual victims of these schemes could see through it.

This is much more organized. Fark the vax fark masks BUT BUY MAH MONOCLONALS PUHLEEEZE

Why should we give Florida pounds of cure...

the company that makes the treatment.

as they say, an ounce of treatment equals a pound of $$$$

DeSantis does not expect Covid-19 to be eradicated, he said."This is going to be with us for a long time," he said. "Covid's not going to go away. We're going to have future trends. That's just natural."Earlier this week, a US Department of Health and Human Services official said Florida had been sent 200 ventilators and 100 high-flow nasal cannula kits from the Strategic National Stockpile, though DeSantis told reporters he was unaware of the shipment and doubted it was true.I used to feel bad about this feeling, but I really hope he farking dies.

That's the medicine that's $2K a dose, right?
 
2021-08-12 9:54:36 PM  
The process will begin with referrals from the health systems, but the state is looking to move to allowing individuals to make appointments, he said. The intention is to expand the model to other parts of the state, the governor said.

Wow, one trial program in one city, to be expanded at some point in the future. Probably not as fast as, say, an absurdly contagious virus tearing through unvaccinated populations, but at least by the time the surge ends, the program will have had enough success that the governor can claim hospitalizations/deaths are down because of him.

They backed off of that after realizing Clorox was based in Oakland.  Can't have your conservative dollars go there.

When referring to the  monoclonal antibody treatments the governor said the following:

"This is the most effective treatment that we've yet encountered for people who are infected with Covid-19," DeSantis said. "This, applied early and properly, has the ability to reduce your likelihood of being hospitalized."

You know what else has the same effect but is free and available in oodles? The farking vaccine.

better to just tell them that the treatment is made from STEM CELLS!!!!1!1!

Florida is gonna need to ramp up the bleach injections if it wants to get through this latest covid wave.

Florida is now run by commies.

My cousin says its dehydrated baby spinal fluid. Do the research.
