Tony Blair was on Radio 4 earlier with a number of proposals, one of which was to accelerate the use of new therapeutics based on monoclonal antibodies. Are those a realistic prospect, or do earlier comments in this thread about their cost still apply? I believe that Trump was given some sort of mAb cocktail, but I guess the budget for treating the POTUS is essentially unlimited.

Doesn’t look like they make a dramatic difference
