Florida surgeon general Joseph Ladapo claimed Tuesday that the Biden administration has been intentionally inhibiting the circulation of Covid-19 therapeutics, which is undermining Florida’s strategy to tackle the disease.

The federal government is “actively preventing the effective distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments,” he wrote in a letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra.

The Biden administration reportedly suspended shipments of Covid-19 antibody treatments, which can shorten severity and duration of illness in those infected by the virus, produced by major drug companies Regeneron and Eli Lilly amid growing evidence that they don’t target the Omicron variant sweeping the nation. Months ago, Governor Ron DeSantis launched dozens of antibody-treatment sites across the state.

While Sotrovimab, a monoclonal antibody from the company Glaxosmithkline, is still being distributed, as it’s still deemed effective against Omicron, Ladapo argued that “the federal agencies under your control should not limit our state’s access to any available treatments for Covid-19.”
