Testing, Antibodies & Convalescent Plasma as Treatment Option?
We all know that COVID-19 testing has lagged far behind the spread of this pandemic. You can extrapolate the reported cases, mortality rate etc. and assume that hundreds of thousands of people have already survived this virus and are carrying potential life-saving antibodies. Now that we will soon have rapid testing available why not reach out to those people, test them and ask for the only treatment currently available? A public service announcement would be a good start. We must protect our health care workers first and treat others according to what the experts determine. It is a bit scary being a transplant recipient and having a suppressed immune system. I have been taking precautions for 3 months and have self quarantined. I have seen so much good in people during this crisis. My neighbors are wonderful. It is good to see people coming together and helping each other.
