Washington Post: Trump politicizes promising coronavirus antibody treatments, erroneously calling them a ‘cure’

Washington Post: Trump politicizes promising coronavirus antibody treatments, erroneously calling them a ‘cure’. “Trump claimed on videos posted on Twitter Wednesday and Thursday that the drug he received, a cocktail of laboratory-made antibodies from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, is a “cure” that would soon be broadly available — even as the company disclosed that in the next few months, it would have enough supply to treat only the number of Americans sickened in the last week, or about 300,000 doses. A similar antibody drug, made by Eli Lilly & Co., shows similar promise but will also be in short supply, with about 1 million doses by year’s end.”
