First person to receive new antibody cocktail

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Intensive care nurse Karen Simeson is the first person on the planet to get a new antibody cocktail injection specifically designed to protect people from COVID-19.

The setting - a small office block in Wakefield - is incongruous. The kitchen has been turned into a make-shift pharmacy where the drug is stored and prepared.

For many, getting a coronavirus vaccine is not an option; people who are already sick or old have a weakened immune system.

This antibody treatment from AstraZeneca - which will be trialled on 1,000 people in the UK - has the potential to protect people instantly and last between six months and a year.

Good for her. I saw the press releases for this last night and posted them in the covid cases rising thread. This cocktail is what was given to Trump and Christie that got them out of the hospital and on their feet so fast. I'm so glad the FDA moved and approved this drug for emergency use. It's about time. Supplies will be short but the cocktail will now be produced as quickly as possible.

Pfizer filed for approval of it's vaccine on Friday.
