UPDATES FROM INCIDENT COMMAND:
“Bam” monoclonal drug for Covid treatment. By today’s end, we will have infused 26 patients with this experimental
Eli Lilly drug. We have 100 vials remaining. All patients thus far have
tolerated the drug well without any interactions and are showing improvement.
The drug is designed to reduce and stop the viral load in mild to moderately
ill patients who are at high risk or have underlying health conditions.
The cost of the drug is free to the patient. The only charge to the patient
is for the saline used and the infusion charge. Most insurances are providing coverage.
