We are in this together
On Friday, August 20, physician leadership from across Hawaii released a joint statement to the people of Hawaii and plea for help so the hospitals across the state can continue in their commitment to care for our people, both those with COVID and those with other health conditions. Here is an excerpt:
To the People of Hawai’i: We are in this together
Hawai’i is experiencing an unprecedented disastrous surge of COVID-19 throughout the state. We need our health care system able to care for people in Hawai’i who are sick—whether it be from COVID, trauma, stroke, heart attack, cancer or other problem. Our ability to deliver on that need is stretched right now. Because of COVID, as we move from conventional to contingency to crisis capacity throughout the state’s healthcare systems, the worst-case scenario can happen -- there will not be enough healthcare for everyone to get the care they need when they need it.

Monoclonal antibody treatment
Monoclonal antibody therapy has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19. If given early in the illness, it has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization and death. It can reduce risk of hospitalization by 70%. Currently, this treatment is authorized for people with COVID-19 who are considered at higher risk for severe disease.
Maui Health is currently offering a monoclonal antibody therapy called Regeneron. This treatment is available by physician referral and is done as an outpatient procedure. For more information, click the link below.
