Corona virus close up with blood cells

(Sedalia) Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia is one the sites for COVID-19 treatment called Monoclonal Antibody Infusion, a proven way to ease the virus and its symptoms.

Yet, there are cases of people still trying drugs meant for livestock instead of these treatments.

Center CEO Lori Wightman explains how using drugs for livestock is a dangerous choice.

Wightman says there is a free and proven treatment available instead.

The governor freed up 15-million dollars in COVID-19 relief funds to provide for these infusion centers around the state.

One is located in Jefferson County.
