Guadalupe Regional Medical Center

Low supplies of a monoclonal antibody believed to more effectively treat cases of the COVID-19 omicron variant are not slowing down the specific treatments at a local hospital.

“We do still have our regional infusion site up in a part of our hospital,” said Elizabeth McCown, Guadalupe Regional Medical Center public information officer. “They are doing about 25 people a day.”
