According to the Food and Drug Administration, ethnic minorities trump white people when prioritizing the distribution of scarce COVID-19 therapeutics. Now some states are prioritizing race over patients suffering from high risk conditions. 

Until the emergence of the omicron variant, three antibody therapeutics were being used to treat COVID-19. In December, pharmaceutical manufacturers Regeneron and Eli Lilly announced that their treatments were not effective against the country’s new dominant strain.

That leaves GlaxoSmithKline’s sotrovimab monoclonal antibody, but it’s in short supply, so only high risk patients will be eligible to receive it, and according to an FDA fact sheet, “non-white” people fall under that category.

The treatment is approved for patients twelve and over that are at considered high risk, if they suffer from conditions including older age, pregnancy, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity amongst others. 

However, the guidelines state that “Other medical conditions or factors (for example, race or ethnicity) may also place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19.”

A few states are using the government’s advice to equate race to a high risk condition. In Democratic New York, “Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death,” according to the state’s Department of Health.   

Minnesota issued guidance last month that stated race and ethnicity alone, “apart from other underlying health conditions, may be considered in determining eligibility” to receive therapeutics. 

They stated that it’s “ethically appropriate to consider race and ethnicity” when data shows high risk of poor outcomes for minorities, and “risk cannot be adequately addressed by determining eligibility based on underlying health conditions (perhaps due to underdiagnosis of health conditions that elevate risk of poor COVID-19 outcomes in these populations).”

Utah has taken it a step further and created a point system which elevates “non-white” people two points higher on a “COVID-19 risk score” when determining eligibility. 

According to their ranking scale, “non-White race or Hispanic/Latinx ethnicity” are entitled to receive antibodies over high risk patients suffering from conditions including hypertension, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, chronic pulmonary disease, chronic liver disease, and more.

  1. Another way the government is promoting racist ideology to further divide an already divided country. It’s part of the grand scheme of the elite to create the civil unrest they so desire to consume our country. This unrest will lead to the feds stepping in via Marshall Law and other Gestapo tactics to take control of the means of production. All in the name of bringing peace, and restoring law and order. Their tricks are as plain as day but the sheeple are falling for it hook, line, and sinker!

    1. A bit clunky to say the least but our skill set and experience won the day. Poor ref with no regard to offside and he bottled it on the sin bin, red card all day long if it had been on sky

  2. This imposter in the White House is dumb enough to think only white people can be racists. Racial bias in ANY form is still racism. But don’t try to explain it to the left.

        1. You got that right but we have some Republicans that are as bad. Look at CHENEY who is trying to ruin TRUMP and along with BIDEN our COUNTRY.

    1. Democrats are racists.Plain and simple but the real thing is that democrats hate whites-whites are too intelligent to control and take over.Blacks have voted for Dems for decades.Gotta keep blacks happy as long as they don’t find out that biden gave the eulogy for Robert Byrd of the kkk who Hillary called her friend and mentor.Biden also opposed busing back in the day, said he didn’t want his kids growing up in a racist “jungle.” Add that to northam’s blackface, etc. and why would you think Dems would prioritize blacks over whites for life saving medication? It’s all for control. Blacks vote dem no matter what and Dems like it.

  3. Can someone please explain to me how this is even legal? I’m being serious I don’t understand how you can give treatment based on race and not factors. Isn’t this against the oathe docs take?

    1. And it will soon be LESS because of abortion. The most dangerous place for a minority child is their mother’s womb!

  4. All of the libaturds blustering and here is emperor Xiden the biggest white supremist, racist of all. If a dem accuses of something it’s because they are already doing it


  6. Ain’t no racism here – Biden is trying to atone for his racist past. Just like his VP and cabinet – individuals selected for their race, gender, or sexual orientation and not for their qualifications. Thus, we have total incompetency in Dumocrat leadership.
    Let’s Go Brandon.

  7. White people just sit back and let it happen.Blacks would be rioting, looting and burning. Isn’t diversity wonderful white folks???? You get to live with racism against you at hospitals when your life depends on it, shootings, paying for rampant welfare-yes, what a good thing diversity is.

  8. Here is the truth.. vaccines are usless as are masks (would you put a screen door on a sub, the factors are being over weight, and many other conditions like diabetes and other dieseas. Being black could be an extrenous variable (like ice cream combustion is highly correlated to rapes and other violent crimes – what you say? when is there ice cream consupmtion and the majority of rape violent crime – ty hter weather). Look at the blacks and see if those blacks have any of these other conditions that are highly correlated to getting covid.
    I am serious, these medical people are really stupid, they have no training in stats or research, they are all good memorizers but not to sure baout their problem solving skills… seriously they read and throw back up. They read and use this to treat. I am not, exactly putting down medical personel, wspwcially all medical personnel. I am making observations about what this profession does. They followbig pharma, CDC, FDA,WHO, whom ever even Dr “science” quack fauci. just makin observations.

  9. Most democrats think it is more important to be a democrat than an american I know because I was a democrat because my father told me to like a lot of people who went through the great depression they all loved FDR whose only fame was for being a war time president.sure he started social security SOCIAL security means we give them money to spend as they like mostly on minority groups just to get their votes.I switched to republican when I retired at 60 when I had time to really look at the differeces and realized that all those years before I was wrong.I am 84 now and sad to see the way the country is going now but glad that I lived in the time I did as it is beginning to look like its all downhill from here
