Great news today from Regeneron

A new study has shown quite nicely that an antibody cocktail made by Regeneron found that people living with someone who has COVID-19 appeared to get terrific protection against infection – 81 % lower risk compared to a control group – when they were given that antibody combo.

And the reason that’s such good news is clearly that one of the biggest lacks in this pandemic fight is something that can immediately protect those who are at high risk of severe infections and who have very recently been exposed to someone who’s infected, especially given the higher rate of transmission with these newly-circulating variants.
