Twitter user Harrison Smith posted a viral video on Twitter showing how he was denied life-saving monoclonal antibody treatment because he was white. Some states have more extensive treatment criteria, but others have strict guidelines, some of which include race. (Yes really)
The nurse can be seen telling the man that you need to be older than 65, have some medical condition, or be black/Hispanic. See below:
“So I won’t be able to qualify? What if I smoke? ‘, asked Smith.
“No, no,” replied the nurse.
“Okay, but if I am black and Hispanic, can I qualify?” Smith asked.
“That’s right,” replied the nurse.
“Okay,” Smith said with a smile. “So I was denied medical services because of my race.”
See the list of “requests”:
One of Smith’s followers even called the hotline to confirm the story, and they admitted that Smith would be treated if he were in the minority. Clock:
“Blacks and Hispanics are high-risk ethnicities.”
“So if a healthy, young white man shows up, he will be refused service?”
“That’s right.” https://t.co/izetnXQ4Iq
