In the 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first gained steam in the United States, the frontline tools used in the fight against the disease have come a long way.

In Campbell County, one of the most recent, and perhaps significant, treatments for COVID-19 is Regeneron, a monoclonal antibody treatment that has been effective in helping patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms and is now offered by Campbell County Health.

COVID testing

Checking into the hospital

Campbell County Memorial Hospital security officer Jeff Jons scans the wrist of someone entering the hospital through the main entrance Thursday morning. He said they began scanning wrists instead of foreheads a few weeks ago to be less invasive of those visiting the hospital.

I strongly recommend that those that refuse to get vaccinated should take a maximum dose of horse dewormer at least equal to what a large hose would get.

Funny how people are willing to put Regeneron into their bodies but not the vaccine.
