AUSTIN, Texas - AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today announced that the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) has launched a therapeutic infusion center in Laredo to treat outpatient cases of COVID-19. The infusion center will begin accepting patients on Monday and has been provided with bamlanivimab to treat patients who meet certain criteria and who have a referral from a hospital or doctor. This infusion center has been established through a partnership between TDEM and the City of Laredo.

“Laredo’s new infusion center will provide crucial therapeutic treatments to those diagnosed with COVID-19,” said Abbott. “These effective treatments continue to keep hospitalizations down and save lives, and I thank our local partners in Laredo for working with us to launch this infusion center.”
