1:38 The advantages of this coronavirus treatment 

Today I want to share some more good coronavirus news. There is another coronavirus treatment out there that’s being investigated. I like this coronavirus treatment. It’s actually been around for a long time. The name of it is convalescent antibody-rich plasma. The word convalescent means that you’re recovering from some type of infection. 

With the convalescent antibody-rich plasma treatment, they use plasma from people who have been through the infection and fully recovered. 

Plasma is rich in antibodies. People who recovered will have antibodies against COVID-19. 

This treatment will actually give you the experience of someone else’s immune system without you having to go through it. It can help protect you. If you’re critically ill, you have antibodies with all of this experience that can help speed up the recovery. 

The potential advantages of this therapy are:

• Decreased viral loads (without adverse reactions)

• Normalized body temperature within a few days

• A reduction in mortality rates from 16% to 1% from hemorrhagic fever

• Significantly lower death rates from flu, MERS, SARS, and ebola 

• It was used in the Spanish flu of 1918 where it showed a reduced mortality rate of 21% between the years of 1918-1925

• One person donating plasma will be enough to treat 3-4 patients with severe symptoms
