The following interview with two physician scientists concerning the use of monoclonal antibodies in the early stages of COVID-19 could save your life, or at the very least keep you out of the hospital. The most crucial information to be found here is the fact that the effectiveness of monoclonal antibodies relies critically on how early it is administered after you test positive for COVID-19 or experience the onset of symptoms, where “early” generally means within 7 to 10 days.
The host, Diana Berrent, is a “long hauler,” meaning she is still experiencing symptoms of various sorts many months after recovering from her initial bout with COVID. Because of her experience, she founded Survivor Corps, which sponsored this interview.
Berrent also urges viewers to explore the website, gotcovid.org, which has pointers to local resources, including (if you qualify, she says) a free treatment of monoclonal antibodies administered in your own home within 24 to 48 hours of your referral by your health care provider (check the gotcovid website to verify that I have stated this correctly). In our area, according to the website, the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital is among those centers able to administer this treatment.
