Horowitz: Why is West Virginia’s governor touting the shot that failed him and not the monoclonal antibodies?

It has become a new ritual, in which every politician or celebrity who gets COVID proceeds to tout the vaccine’s success in preventing a worse outcome – without any evidence that the vaccine played a role. Now we have politicians getting COVID bad, and they still credit the vaccines that failed rather than the treatments that succeed. Then they tell their constituents to double down on failure without sharing the secret of their success. Why is there a double standard between their own treatment and that of the rest of the public?

On Tuesday, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice tested positive for COVID after his office described him as “extremely unwell” and suffering “moderate” COVID symptoms. Moderate COVID is more serious than mild COVID. This is not what we would expect from a vaccine with a modicum of efficacy after Justice bragged about getting three shots (and is now asking for fourth doses). Justice then relied upon the monoclonal antibodies for treatment, and his office put out an update on Thursday saying he feels “100% better” after “the antibodies really kicked in.”
