Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that the state will offer Covid-19 patients monoclonol antibody treatment to reduce the chance of serious illness and death.

"Monoclonal antibodies are man-made proteins that act like human antibodies in the immune system," CBS News in Miami reported yesterday. "This type of treatment can be prescribed by health care providers to individuals 12 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe illness and hospitalization. The antibodies help the immune system recognize and respond effectively to the virus."

The news report continued, "According to the treatment guidelines, they should be administered as soon as possible after diagnosis, and within 10 days of symptom onset."
