  1. Disheartening to sill see so many deaths and hospitalizations. Still way too slow in the vaccine rollout but hopefully that improves. In the meantime, what’s going on with the monoclonal treatments to minimize deaths? I read there is an abundance of this anti-viral treatment which was deemed very effective in minimizing death and severity of the cases if given early enough. Would love to see more reporting and investigation around that. Is everyone who enters the hospital receiving it? Are primary care physicians reacting too late (or worse, not at all) with offering this option? Are people not educated on its availability? Is it not widely available? Many unanswered questions that RI DOH should address in its weekly reporting and if they don’t then journalists should inquire and report.
