The U.S. government says it’s cancelling a planned order of monoclonal antibody treatments for Covid-19 infections and warned that the country could eventually run short of vaccines because of a lack of funding.

The White House made the announcement Tuesday as it renews calls for Congress to authorize a fresh round of funding for the government’s Covid-19 response. Weeks of effort have fallen flat, leaving the administration to begin to claw back shipments and warn they may soon end.
