Rudy Giuliani and Ben Carson flaunted the CDC coronavirus guidelines by going unmasked and attended gatherings with no regard for the transmission of COVID-19. They contracted COVID-19. They had no problem getting admitted to a hospital for treatment. They received the special drug cocktail that Donald Trump received and recovered thanks to the scarce monoclonal antibody therapy. According to an article written by Josh Kovensky (Talking Points Memo, Dec. 9. 2020), “all the doses in circulation currently belong to the U.S. government. The government bought 300,000 doses at around $1,500 a pop earlier this year. Those are the only doses being distributed in the United States at the moment, and are available for free per the Department of Health and Human Services.” With thousands of Americans dying daily, one has to wonder who gets access to the scarce monoclonal antibodies.
