Theyíre going to wait for patents (while people are RĒL dying) before bringing this to market? What about clinical trials, or whatever the current FDA allowance is for compassionate/emergency use?
Both Bennet and the institution aren't reliable. It's likely just some minor progress in identifying the antibody.

From what I understand, they are saying that the mechanics of it make it able to work on someone already infected

That is how I understood this:

Defense Minister Naftali Bennett visited the Ness Ziona-based lab on Monday and was briefed by the research team, who he said revealed a breakthrough antibody that attacks the virus and neutralizes it in the body.
IIBR is now working to patent its antibody and secure a contract for its commercial development. All legal procedures will be coordinated with the Defense Ministry.

It should be noted that experts estimate the testing period for the antibody could be at least one year. They also stressed that at this stage the antibody has only been researched in a lab and that many hurdles must be crossed before it is turned into a medicine.

Channel 12 initially reported it as a vaccine and then modified the article to state cure, but the whole thing is hyperbole bc the institution needs the funding

It was a statement to the media that was not published. From a dumb hyperactive politician.

I wrote about the issue of coronavirus “strains”. Despite the recent overblown stories, there’s no strong evidence that more dangerous strains have evolved—or even that there’s more than one strain. Here's a guide to making sense of it all.

Because of corona, I found out that my cousin has been volunteering to bury people for many years, a good friend of mine volunteers for taharos, and so do 2 other people I know well. Nice to find out that I underestimated the greatness of the everyday people in my life.

 After Recovery From the Coronavirus, Most People Carry Antibodies
A new study adds to evidence of immunity among those who have already been exposed to the pathogen.

Interesting. So those who tested negative for antibodies after being positive for covid were almost all tested too early.
