TAMPA – Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday announced the state is purchasing 3,000 doses of a new monoclonal antibody treatment after the Biden administration made the decision last week to limit the number of Regeneron doses received by Florida and other states.

DeSantis said the new doses coming to the state will be sotrovimab, a single-dose monoclonal antibody manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline that was granted emergency use authorization by the FDA in May.

The supply of Regeneron, which the state has used at 25 treatment sites across Florida, has dropped off dramatically, according to DeSantis....
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I have a feeling that Florida's new surgeon general will have a very short time in his position.

Why? He is exactly what Gov. Desantis wants. He gives "medical expertise" to their unscientific ravings.
He has an ego.  Don't think he will withstand the critics of DeSantis' policies.  After signing the "Great Barrington Declaration", he changed his tune by saying he didn't agree with half of it.  The chemistry is a sure problem.

I would submit he isn't defying Biden - he found another treatment.

Fact is the Biden administration is right to re-balance Regeneron shipments - it made sense for the south to have the majority over the past two months while the virus was rampant. Now it is receding there, and increasing in areas of the upper midwest and (to some extent) the northeast.

Yeah, I don't see that he defied anyone.

An interesting but sad way to have to make a point about Florida's new "surgeon general" (in quotes because I think he is totally unqualified for the job):
