KEY POINTS:

  • Developing
  • Antibodies from recovered patients can be used to treat others and PREVENT Coronavirus / COVID-19
  • The plasma from a recovered patient, carrying the antibodies, can be transferred to prevent disease in another.
  • 1 recovered patient can treat 2 others
  • Not a treatment for mass production, however, ideal to treat and prevent HEALTHCARE workers from infection, so that we don’t have a shortage and so they don’t cross infect others
