Listen: Drugs may be rationed due to omicron

  • Healthcare is forced to prioritize which patients can receive the drug sotrovimab, which is the only monoclonal antibody that works with the omicron variant.

  • The treatment is now only given to people with severely weakened immune systems, where the vaccine does not work.
