US will ensure equitable distribution of COVID-19 treatment - Health Sec.

WASHINGTON - US Health Secretary Alex Azar said on Tuesday the US government would ensure equitable distribution of Eli Lilly's antibody treatment for COVID-19 patients, starting first with hospitals and areas where there are many cases.
"We'll ensure equitable distribution, and we'll work tightly with our governors," Azar said, using the same process the government used with remdesivir, a drug used to treat people hospitalized with COVID-19.
Azar said health officials and Lily were exploring other ways to give the treatment outside hospitals, including outpatient infusion centers.
