West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Talks About Biden Administration Rejecting Request For More Monoclonal Antibodies

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice requested the Biden administration for an increase in the supply of monoclonal antibodies. The treatment with monoclonal antibodies has proven to be effective in treating COVID patients who are hospitalized. However, his request was rejected by the administration. When asked about it, he did not blame Biden for it but pointed out the scarcity in supply of monoclonal antibodies. Moreover, Justice said, “We’re concerned. We weren’t denied. It was just lowered. But, with all that, the reality is the supply. The Southern states just gobbled up all the supply and everything. And, again, the Biden administration is standing there holding the bag. We need more antibodies here, but we’re managing it.”

Jim Justice Not In Favor Of California’s Vaccine Mandate For Students

California has issued a vaccine mandate for school kids but Justice is not in favor of this move. He made it clear that no such measure will be taken in his state as he believes in giving the freedom of choice to parents and students. Furthermore, he said, “I truly believe that the mandates only divide us and only divide us more. From the standpoint of mandates, I don’t believe in imposing upon our freedoms over and over and over. And I’ve said that over. I don’t know how many times I’ve got to say it.”
