VALDOSTA, Ga. — South Georgia Medical Center announced that, "due to to the increased demand and declining supply of monoclonal antibody infusions available to healthcare facilities across the Southeast," the facility would be postponing operations of its COVID-19 treatment center.

According to SGMC, the center will resume operations once they are able to adequately resupply.

SGMC announced Friday that an allocation of monoclonal antibody infusions will be coming soon.

"We are hopeful to receive more infusions sometime next week and at that time, we will reopen our COVID-19 treatment center," the hospital
said in a statement.
