Myron Cohen, MD, professor of medicine in infectious diseases and director of the UNC Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases, said masks and vaccines remain the best line of defense against Covid in an NBC News story.

“You want to prevent any disease you can, rather than treat it, because the consequences of the infection are grave,” he said.

At the same time, Cohen does not oppose spreading the word about monoclonal antibodies.

The monoclonal antibody treatments, when given shortly after a person tests positive for the virus, have been shown to reduce the risk of hospitalization.
