The Kanawha Charleston Health Department will now directly administer a life-saving treatment for COVID-19.

Health officials say administering monoclonal antibodies is one way to lessen the strain on nearby hospitals.

“We know that we need to have this to try to keep people out of hospitals,” said the health department’s interim director Dr. Sherri Young at a press conference Thursday.

The health department tests and vaccinates residents, but Young said this is a “last ditch effort” to keep people safe.

Kentucky may already be using monoclonal antibody treatments at a faster clip than new federal government limits will allow.
