Shortly after Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine Cava stated that the county supply of monoclonal antibodies was depleted as a result of residents have been using the therapy as a "substitute for the vaccination," the county's Regeneron chart that is posted on the official county website was taken down. Shortly after it was announced that Mayor Cava's administration took down the Regeneron data, The Floridian confirmed that the chart was indeed removed.

We reached out to Cava's communication department, but after being bounced around a bit, we spoke to "Teresa," who told us to send a formal request for comment via email because there wasn't anyone available at the time to address the allegation.

Cava's office has yet to address our request for comment, more than 24 hours after the request was submitted. We made another attempt for comment but now the office is closed for Christmas.

Cava recently sent a letter to state Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo requesting more monoclonal treatments.

“We have come too far, and have made too much progress, to let our guard down now, and we are using every tool in our toolkit to keep residents and visitors safe, particularly during the holiday season. We are continuing to make vaccination and the booster shots widely available; offering testing at nearly 30 locations countywide; requiring hospitals to provide daily COVID reporting and sequencing and sampling wastewater for variants; and working to expand access to the latest treatment options,” wrote Levine Cava.
