NY health officials will collect “convalescent” plasma (liquid part of blood) from recovered #COVID19 patients & inject the #antibody-rich plasma into sick #coronavirus patients.

This approach was used during the 1918 Spanish Flu #pandemic.…
Although convalescent plasma is “old school,” it has a good chance of success.

Convalescent plasma decreased the severity of symptoms & shortened hospital stays for #SARS, and preliminary reports from #China suggests it also works for #coronavirus.😃
#COVID19 convalescent plasma first will be given to critically ill #coronavirus patients. Once proven safe & effective (good chance!), it will likely work best if given BEFORE patients get critically ill. It might also be effective in protecting front-line health care workers.🤗
