Posted: Oct 8, 2020 10:42 AM

Indianapolis based Eli Lilly is requesting emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for its COVID-19 antibody treatment. Last month the company said the single antibody treatment helped to reduce hospitalizations and ER visits.The request for EUA comes after the the company’s second round of drug trials that showed COVID-19 patients who were treated, were hospitalized at lower rates.

Eli Lilly is also working on a second drug in which the company plans to request an EUA for next month. That drug is a combination antibody treatment, similiar to what President Donald Trump received at Walter Reed.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
