Non-White individuals will be given priority in the distribution of COVID-19 treatments, which are in low supply in the state of New York.
The New York State Department of Health issued a letter outlining their strategy for distributing treatments such as monoclonal antibody therapy and antiviral pills to the public.
The letter mentions eligibility for the low-supply antiviral pills and says people who receive the medication need to have “a medical condition or other factors that increase their risk for severe illness.”
One noted “risk factor” is being a part of a ethnicity or race that is not white due to “longstanding systemic health and social inequities.”
The memo says, “Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.”
“Who issued this?” “Who actually wrote it and approved it?” “Did the Governor know?” All will be crucial questions. As will the reactions of the Governor, state AG and AG Garland. Question for them all: “Do you believe state action based in any way on race is constitutional?” https://t.co/Kl9Om5rE9c
New York City has seen a rise in anti-vaccine mandate protests in recent months. This past week, five individuals were arrested by NYPD after refusing to leave a fast food restaurant after they were denied service due to lack of vaccination.
Similar anti-vaccine passport demonstrations have arisen across Europe, with demonstrators accusing governments of preventing the unvaccinated from leading their lives as normally as they would have otherwise.
The New York Department of Health did not reply to a request for comment from Fox News.
