President Donald Trump received a dose of REGN-COV2 following an “expanded access” request from the president’s physicians.

REGN-COV2 is an investigational antibody cocktail that is in clinical trials for the treatment of COVID-19. It consists of two potent, complementary virus-neutralizing antibodies and was designed specifically to target the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus.
