West Virginia today reported 28,035 active cases of covid-19. “This infusion therapy has been shown to work and cut down those numbers,” Blair said today. Senate Majority Leader Tom Takubo, R-Kanawha, has been speaking in favor of vaccination. Takubo is also a pulmonologist.
“The President added that if anybody does test positive, we are encouraging them to get monoclonal antibodies and steroid treatments as he mentioned today during his press conference,” Bland said. Lawmakers met for three days of regularly-scheduled interim meetings this week, starting Sunday. Members of the Republican majority also gathered today at a press conference about vaccine issues, including the Biden administration’s recent announcement pushing large employers toward vaccine mandates or regular testing.
Senate President Craig Blair, R-Berkeley, advocated for antibody treatment for covid patients to minimize the likelihood of having to be hospitalized. “The member’s close contacts have been notified, and all of those people are following guidance that we have been provided by both the CDC, DHHR, and our Capitol nurse.”
“I believe the vaccinations are working and they’re saving lives,” he said during today’s Senate GOP press conference.
