Of the first patients to be treated at the infusion center, only six needed to be hospitalized. What we found at the infusion center at El Centro Regional Medical Center is that one ICU bed is freed up for every 10 patients treated with the antibody infusion.
El Centro normally has only 12 ICU beds but reached over 60 critical patients in the hospital and outside tents. However, in implementing the program, the El Centro team faced a challenge educating the community on MABs and their availability.
The team filmed a of interviews with locals to tell their stories, gain understanding of the community and fact find what was needed to move people to get MABs.

Now is the time to quickly adopt and implement a national strategy that pairs vaccination stations with infusion centers and uses women leaders in gaining the trust of communities. It is a plan that will be successful. Gentrification is stealing our magic.
