(RightIsRight.co) – In a move that has medical professionals and Governor Greg Abbott of Texas in agreement that it will cost lives, the administration of Joe Biden “stopped distributing treatments made by Regeneron and Eli Lilly because they aren’t effective against omicron, even though the delta variant, which the drugs are effective at treating, was still dominant at the time,” as Fox News reports.
“Now, one doctor says the government’s massive miscalculation cost lives.
“‘I am as angry as I possibly can be about this,” Dr. Ron Elfenbein, the medical director and CEO of FirstCall Medical Center in Gambrills, Maryland, told Fox News Digital…
“‘The fact that these people are so adamant that they’re right when they’re using faulty data and they’re using faulty logic and frankly statistical modeling that has never been correct, ever, throughout this entire pandemic, to look at this, is just beyond the pale…. People are definitely going to die because of this or need hospitalization because [health officials] misread the statistics.'” [emphasis added]
At the heart of the problem is that the Biden administration got it wildly wrong when calculating the percentage of COVID-19 cases from the Delta variant and the new Omicron variant. The administration even had to come out and admit it was wrong and that when it pulled the Regeneron and Eli Lilly treatments, 77% of patients were still afflicted by the Delta variant, which those now withdrawn treatments can combat.
And now, as you can see in the tweet below, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has weighed in as well, saying:
“A Maryland doctor had to cancel potentially life-saving monoclonal antibody infusions for 250 people after the Biden Administration stopped distributing treatments made by Regeneron and Eli Lilly. Same is true in Texas & across U.S. Biden screwed up.” [emphasis added]
Please share your thoughts about the Biden administration halting the distribution of treatments made by Regeneron and Eli Lilly by emailing [email protected]. Are you concerned that Americans will die because of this move by the Biden administration? Why or why not?
