Racism – MN Department Of Health Is Giving Non-White Patients Priority For Lifesaving Treatment

Antibody COVID Infusion ST TT 002

Hypocrisy is a terrible trait for anyone to have. When mixed with social justice causes, it screams out for intervention, but not in today’s upside-down progressive cities.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is directing hospitals to blatantly discriminate against white individuals when prioritizing which patients receive monoclonal antibodies. They have decided to give extra points for those who are Black, Indigenous, People of Color. The more points you have, the higher on the priority list you go.

Monoclonal antibodies are made in a laboratory and mimic natural antibodies a person’s body makes to fight diseases. They’ve been used to treat active COVID-19 cases and as a preventative for healthy individuals.

With the increase in popularity of monoclonal antibodies in treating COVID-19, the extra demand has caused supply to run low across the country. Some patients have been turned away when attempting to access monoclonal antibodies.

Per KFYR:

Prior to September, state health departments and hospitals could purchase their own supply of the treatment, but that changed four weeks ago when the federal government stepped in and began allocating the supply.

“Those specific antibodies have been allocated to the 50 states based on what’s occurring within the states in terms of utilization but also the number of active cases,” said Tim Wiedrich, section chief for the Health Resources Response Section with the North Dakota Department of Health.

With demands high across the country and manufacturers not being able to keep up, states including North Dakota are seeing massive shortages.

“For the most part, most people have been able to obtain it. Now there are times when they have had to drive some distance in order to get to a facility that has it or facilities have shifted product to get the monoclonal antibodies to the where the patient is at. Again, there have been some patients that have not been able to get it,” said Wiedrich.

An MDH document titled “Ethical Framework for Allocation of Monoclonal Antibodies during the COVID-19 Pandemic” states that “race and ethnicity alone, apart from other underlying health conditions, may be considered in determining eligibility for mAbs [monoclonal antibodies].”

Here are the factors and their associated values:

  • Being BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) (2 points)
  • Age 65+ (2 points)
  • BMI 35 kg/m2 and higher (2 points)
  • Diabetes mellitus (2 points)
  • Chronic kidney disease (3 points)
  • Heart disease in patients ages 55+ (2 points)
  • Chronic respiratory disease in patients ages 55+ (3 points)
  • Hypertension in patients age 55+ (1 point)
  • Immunocompromised (3 points)
  • Pregnancy (4 points)

In the end, if all factors are the same, the hospitals are required to give the BIPOC people the treatment first, if some monoclonal antibodies inventory is remaining then the white patients can get treatment too.

How you feel about this scenario indicates if you are for individual liberties, like our nation’s founding, or have joined the Marxist collective world view, seeing no problem with prioritizing people by their skin color.
