Abbott promotes distribution of new COVID drug, defends state choices in local closures
“There’s an overestimation as to exactly what a shutdown will achieve, and there’s a misunderstanding about what a shutdown will not achieve…if you lock people down, and try to prevent any movement whatsoever, there are now known severe medical consequences of that.”

new COVID-19 remedies in Texas and calls for caution in gathering as the
Thanksgiving holidays approach.
