Convalescent Plasma Treatment for COVID 19 has been widespread in the US. Following infection, many patients have donated their plasma containing SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to try to help patients with severe symptoms fight COVID-19. The big news today is that the emergency approval from the FDA for the use of plasma treatment is now on hold based on a lack of robust data that demonstrates efficacy. Dr. Seheult also discusses COVID 19 in India, Brazil, North Carolina, and college campuses that have experienced coronavirus outbreaks since resuming in-person classes

Coronavirus Pandemic Update 103: Convalescent Plasma Treatment & the FDA; College Campuses Close
