The treatment has come under the spotlight after Trump was treated with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals' antibody drug last week.
In a radio interview with Rush Limbaugh, Trump said he may not have recovered without the treatments he received to combat his own coronavirus illness.
The government's Operation Warp Speed program now has "a couple of hundred thousand doses" of the monoclonal antibody treatments being developed by drugmakers Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc and Eli Lilly & Co, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services official Paul Mango said on a call with reporters.
Infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci, M.D., has said of Regeneron's experimental antibody cocktail that: "There is a reasonably good chance that in fact it made [President Donald Trump] much better". "We've authorised it. I've authorised it", Trump said. He also said he approved emergency use of the antibody cocktail for hospitals, and even promised it would be free for patients when distributed.
Regeneron, which does not claim its treatment is a cure, said in its statement that 50,000 people would have access to the drug if it was granted approval.
