WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Governor Roy Cooper is scheduled to be in Wilmington Wednesday afternoon to tour a monoclonal antibody treatment facility.
Cooper, along with Dr. Mandy Cohen, the secretary of the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, will visit the Cape Fear Clinic which has been administering 50 of the antibody treatments a week for free.
Earlier this month, Cooper signed an executive order to make it easier for North Carolinians to access the treatment, which can help decrease the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death related to COVID-19.
The order will be in effect through Nov. 30.
The visit can be seen below:
Looking forward to visiting Cape Fear Clinic in Wilmington this afternoon. The clinic has been administering 50 monoclonal antibody treatments to patients in their community for FREE each week! Grateful for these healthcare workers for their role in saving lives.
