Florida Governor DeSantis promotes antibody treatment at Tampa hospital
With hospital beds filling up across the state, Governor Ron DeSantis visited Tampa General Hospital, which, he said, is having great success with a treatment for COVID-19 that is not well known. TGH was the first in Florida to offer monoclonal antibodies. It is a highly effective therapy for people who contract COVID-19.
More than 1,600 patients have received the antibody cocktails at the hospital’s infusion clinic at the Global Emerging Diseases Institute. The treatment has been shown to help reduce hospitalizations and prevent the worsening of COVID-19 symptoms. The key is getting the monoclonal antibodies early. The therapy works best right after you test positive, or within seven days of developing mild to moderate symptoms.
